Dear Friend,

(https://t.e2ma.net/click/i688k/68243d/yazksc)

Join us Saturday, September 19 to learn how to build stronger campaigns for change in Arkansas.

Special interest groups are stronger than ever at the Capitol, and the people of Arkansas must work harder to make sure lawmakers keep the needs of hard working families in mind.

We will review our priority campaigns, and discuss ways to improve them, but this year we will also include training sessions to help citizen advocates strenghten their efforts. 

Here is the tentative agenda, we'll see you next week!
