Too often people have no idea who their local elected officials are. They also don’t know where or when their local officials have meetings. This is a good first step to getting engaged and informed to bring about change.
So, what can you do? Connect yourself to sources of information about your local government.
- Sign up for the meeting notifications and email lists for your local elected officials.
- Get their meetings on your calendar and show up if there is something on the agenda that matters to you.
This won’t change the world over night, but it’s a great place to start.
