Location: Hawaii State Capitol, 415 S Beretania St, Honolulu, HI 96813, USA

Civics IS Sexy is a free to the public participatory workshop promoting effective community engagement in the Hawai‘i State Legislature. The process of creating, following, and testifying on important issues in our society can be overwhelming, but the Surfrider Foundation's Oahu Chapter, Hawai‘i Center For Food Safety, and Kokua Hawai‘i Foundation want to help you navigate these unfamiliar waters. Join us for a Saturday at the Capitol and we will walk you through the process with details on how to use the State's legislative website, gather information through the public access room, and give in-person testimony in front of a panel of legislatures. You'll also be able to connect with a wide variety of communities and organizations doing extraordinary work to make Hawai‘i a better place. Join us for a day of inspiring guest speakers, interactive discussions, hands on training, and a free lunch for all participants. Bring a laptop, tablet, or internet ready device to follow along! The doors open for sign-in and networking at 9:30AM, with the event officially beginning at 10AM Register via this link https://www.eventbrite.com/e/civics-is-sexy-forming-a-community-voice-at-the-hawaii-state-legislature-tickets-20240944209
