The League of Women Voters of Northwest Maricopa County invites the public to join a discussion of “Advocacy Made Easy” at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21. The meeting will be held at the Universalist Unitarian Church, 17540 Avenue of the Arts, in Surprise.
Speaker Bonnie Boyce-Wilson teaches Public Policy and Advocacy for Arizona State University’s School of Social Work. She is a registered lobbyist in Arizona for the League of Women Voters and the American Association of University Women.
“The League is nonpartisan, but we do take positions on issues and then educate and advocate through personal meetings with legislators, public meetings, educational forums, social media and traditional media,” stated Boyce-Wilson.
She will speak about trending topics such as healthcare, immigration, the environment, the climate crisis, and money in politics.
Boyce-Wilson will discuss how to get fact-based information, as well as master quick and easy ways to express your views to elected officials.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and Advocacy.
Men are also welcome.
