Democracy: It's Up to Us!
Come Get Your Civics On!
How An Idea Becomes a Law
By Logan Pitts, MPA
Senior Field Representative
and Senior Legislative Aide at California State Senate
On Zoom, Tuesday, February 20, 2024 at 6 pm PST
Free but Registration Required.
Do you know what Democracy is? It's us! If we don't know what's going on, if we don't know how our government works, then we forfeit our political power to other people -- who may or may not share our interests. Democracy is only as strong and healthy as our awareness and involvement in it. Government is a good example that if we are not AT the table, then our interests will be ON the table.
Laws reveal the values and ideals of a society, as well as the standards for how people treat one other. Since laws are so important in our lives, do you know how an idea becomes a law? How easy or hard is it to make a law? How are differences of opinion handled when making a law? It's time to find out! Sign up and listen to Logan share his experience and knowledge of how laws get made in California.
