NEWS FROM LITERACY MINNESOTA'S LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE:
A legislative forum will be held in mid-late February (the date has yet to be confirmed). If you are interested in learning more about the legislative process, would like to meet your legislators, and get CEU's all at the same time, then plan to join us at the Capitol. We are looking to other managers and coordinators to support this effort bu simply showing up and having a good time!
We'd also like you to invite 1-2 higher level learners from your programs to attend and learn about the legislative process and share their stories about how ABE has positively impacted their lives.
ABE professionals (teachers, volunteers, support staff, managers/coordinators), representative learners from each participating ABE program, legislators.
GOAL of the legislative forum:
The goal of the legislative forum is to provide an educational opportunity for staff and learners interested in learning more about the legislative process (with CEUs provided); to increase awareness of Literacy Minnesotas legislative agenda amongst legislators; to increase Literacy Minnesota's base of support amongst ABE professionals statewide and to provide an opportunity for legislators to meet ABE learners and hear their stories and how ABE has enhanced their lives.
Stay tuned for more details! We hope you'll consider participating in this important legislative year.
