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.
There are many substance related topics our Hear Us students may want to cover with their legislators. We will discuss their communities and the problems or concerns on their minds. We will also look at legislation on substance issues and explore what students might be most passionate about.
