Meet Me at the Statehouse and Advocacy 101 trainings

WREN trains groups across the state on issues affecting women and girls, while also providing information on the legislative process and how to advocate. During legislative session, we also encourage advocates to meet us at the Statehouse to engage legislators directly in a supportive group setting.  

If you have a group or organization that is interested in receiving an Advocacy 101 training, contact Megan Plassmeyer at MPlassmeyer@scwren.org, and for Meet Me at Statehouse, contact Damilola Ajisegiri at DAjisegiri@scwren.org.
