Topic: Civics 101

The Civics 101 ACTION Guide provides information on the lawmaking process at the city, county, state, and national levels. This ACTION Guide also provides information about how to build effective relationships with policymakers in order to become a go-to resource on an issue you care about. Breaking down the barriers to civic engagement is critically important to making long-term sustainable changes in communities. Possessing the knowledge provided in the Civics 101 ACTION Guide will empower community advocates to take that important next step.

Understanding how government works and whom to contact puts advocates in a better position to implement these strategies.
