Hear Us is an annual spring advocacy event hosted by PreventEd for current St. Louis region high school students. They will train and prepare for legislative visits with the State Senator and Representative that is specific to their zip code.
This year, we are offering a series of trainings to prepare for Hear Us. All trainings will be virtual. Each training will cover a different aspect of preparing for the eventual legislative visits. While it is not required to participate in all of the trainings, it is strongly encouraged as all of the sessions build upon each other and offer an opportunity to prepare with the other students that may share their senator or representative.
In this session we will learn about the legislative process. We will cover how an idea becomes a law and how youth can influence the process. This is where we begin the strategy process.
