B3 How State Government Really Works

We often hear questions like: What is really going on inside the State Capitol? What is the role of each branch of state government, and how do they work together? What laws have passed recently that impact my work or the kids I serve? How do I turn an idea into a law or policy to help more kids and families?

Participants of this workshop will get answers to these questions and learn how the sausage gets made. You will not only leave with information but also with new ideas for getting involved in the process.
