Wednesday Wake-Up: Congressional Recess and What That Means For You!
July 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Congress begins its recess in August. This began in 1970 when Congress mandated a summer break as part of the Legislative Reorganization Act.
Why do our legislators take a recess when there is so much to be done? There are a handful of reasons that we will talk about and you might be surprised how it can actually work in your favor!
For this conversation, I will be joined by Donna Mullins and Charla Penn, both previous Hill staffers who have continued their careers in public policy. We will be discussing some of the basic pillars of advocacy and how you can still raise your voice during the congressional recess. Our very own Terry Wilcox will also be stopping by to share some of her own experiences advocating during recess as well as some current bills that you can advocate for!
So make sure to register for this conversation, as this is one that you don’t want to miss!
