Do you want to change the law or create a new one?
Join us on March 13 for a practical, hands-on workshop, offered by Professor Jim Moore on the source and balance of political power.
In our democracy, the source of power is you. The balance of power is shared across five levels of government - local, regional, state, national and international. Each level of government has authority to address issues you care about, but it’s often difficult to know which ones you should you approach and how to advance your political cause.
Dr. Moore is an expert on the structure of government and the levers of power to change existing laws and to create new ones. He is the Director of Political Outreach for the Tom McCall Center for Civic Engagement at Pacific University. He is also a renowned speaker and authority on politics and has been interviewed more than 7,500 times for local and national media.
Dr. Moore will help us better understand our federalist structure of government. Using real, contemporary political issues, he will illustrate which governments have authority to address which social causes, and help you identify where you might be most effective when you advocate for your cause.
Note: Registration deadline is March 11 for this in-person event!
