TULSA, OK – Tuesday, November 17th at 6:30 pm join the Tulsa 9/12 Project and Amanda Teegarden for Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process Course.
Amanda Teegarden’s Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process training classes are in-depth working sessions.
– Attendees will come out of these classes better informed, more confident in their ability to communicate with elected officials.
– Attendees will be able to read, track and follow legislation for themselves. Understanding the potential impact of proposed legislation is important not only for us, but for our families and the state of Oklahoma.
Classes are broken up into three parts (time allowing): Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced.
Introductory – This covers the basics of citizen involvement, including an overview of Oklahoma’s legislative process. Session includes identifying your elected officials; contacting and communicating with them; and utilizing the OK Legislature’s websites.
Intermediate – Builds on the introductory information, and covers more specifics of the legislative process, including interim studies, and the course of a bill through the legislature. Session includes the roles of House and Senate committees and when to advocate for/against a bill, as well as when/how to contact Leadership.
Advanced – Includes how to read a bill with understanding; discerning political doublespeak; and who and what is influencing legislation in Oklahoma.
Why do we do this? To be a better-informed electorate makes for better government.
Let’s do what we can to hold elected officials more accountable to the people and their oath of office. Not only at election time, but all the time.
