“Make Your Voice More Powerful – How to Be an Effective Advocate for Public Policy” is the topic of the public forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters Leelanau County on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 12 noon in the lower level of the Leelanau County Government Center. Renell Weathers, the Public Engagement Director with the Michigan League of Public Policy in Lansing will speak on how you can influence public policy at the local, state and federal levels. Using early childhood advocacy as a model, she will talk about how public policy is built and provide strategies to affect change. The Michigan League of Public Policy has worked in our state capital for decades to build public policy that protects all people in Michigan, particularly those who are often left out of political decisions. In this workshop, the presenter will share how we can all be more active participants in our democracy. The forum is open to the public. Many bring a sack lunch. A LWVLC business meeting will follow the presentation.
