Upcoming events and talks

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of doing a talk about citizen lobbying for the Junior League Western Regional Conference. Soon after, I did a talk with the San Diego Audubon Society as part of their advocacy training program.

These were my first two talks supporting my new book The Empowered Citizens Guide: 10 Steps to Passing a Law that Matters to You, and the response was overwhelming!

From the feedback I got, it's clear that many people are really motivated to make change. They just need the steps to get there.

That's why I'm really excited for the next few events! Join me for one of these upcoming talks:
