Civic duty does not end at the polling place. Our legislators are charged with the responsibility of representing the people in their district, and the best way for them to vote in the interests of their constituents is for us to alert them to the issues important to us. During this workshop we will learn about the Virginia legislative process, find out how to effectively advocate for civil liberties and discuss the top issues expected to be before the legislature in 2013.
