The Michigan chapter of the Scholars Strategy Network is sponsoring a training workshop on state legislative sessions. The workshop provides critical knowledge that can be used to foster evidence-based legislation. It provides scholars with practical steps for getting engaged with elected officials. Participants learn about state legislatures, the cycle of state legislation, and how and when they can engage. Researchers will be given concrete tips on how to track legislation and determine who in government is the proper target for outreach.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the cycle of legislation and the best times to reach out
  • Understand the way your research can be translated to maximize the effectiveness of your outreach
  • Develop your own plan for outreach to state legislatures, understanding best practices for tracking legislation and what to do once you have secured a meeting
