The Louisiana Equal Voices Institute and Alliance Institute are coming together to present a workshop on mobilization for statewide initiatives. Following the recovery efforts of the 2005 hurricane season and the 2010 BP Oil Drilling Disaster many New Orleans and Louisiana based organizations have tried to figure out how to affect change at the State legislative level. It is in response to this need that the workshop is being put together.
Set for Saturday, March 5, 2011, participants can look forward to gaining not only an understanding of how decisions are made at the legislature, but also a look at best practices for mobilizing community residents on issues to be decided on in the legislature.
