Thank you to all our students, lawmakers, interns, and staff who took part in making our 2021 Student Advocacy Week a success. We appreciate the time all of you took to get engaged and participate in this year’s event. Moving forward, our team will continue testifying in committee hearings and communicating with lawmakers as our bills of interest make their way around the legislature as both chambers continue to hold committee hearings and debate the FY 2022 budget.
Updates on the legislation we are supporting can be found here.
Our interns have transitioned from research into policy writing. Our interns are now peer-reviewing each other’s policy proposals to ensure the best possible policy implementation of their policy solutions. Once they are finished receiving feedback from another intern, they’ll polish up their policy proposal document. Next week, they’ll be looking at developing outreach strategies on how to communicate these solutions to the student body.
Here are some news articles we had our eye on this week:
More updates on our Legislative Team and happenings in the Capitol will be provided in future newsletters, so stay tuned!
