COST: Free (There will be a free-will offering basket for contributions to cover workshop expenses)
LEADERS: Marty Ryan and Stephanie Fawkes-Lee, Legislative Advocates for the Justice Reform Consortium will be our leaders. They have many years of experience in working with our legislators.
The workshop will last approximately 1-½ hours followed by coffee and refreshments. Area legislators will be invited to attend the latter part of the program.
You will receive valuable information, which includes a legislative agenda for 2013, as well as basic lobbying information about how the legislature works.
Please contact Marty Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know that you are coming so that he may prepare an appropriate amount of written materials.
If you are a member of the Iowa CURE community inside the walls of an Iowa prison, PLEASE share this information with your family and friends. Together we can make a difference. We need to come together and plan how we can work for a prison system based on restorative justice (making things as right as possible for everyone touched by crime).
