District United Methodist Women - Sage


 

Idaho Legislative Advocacy Event

February 23 and 24, 2020

As members of United Methodist Women, we know the importance of being advocates for change.  We also know the importance of being educated about the issues that matter to us, and about how we can best affect the change we want to see.  One way to do that is by participating in the Idaho Legislative Advocacy Event, February 23 and 24 in Boise. 

The Sunday afternoon session will be at First United Methodist Church.  It will feature presenters on topics relevant to the upcoming legislative session, as well as a workshop on considering our Christian principles and the priority issues of United Methodist Women to evaluate our legislators and candidates. 

Monday will be spent at Idaho’s State Capitol, attending legislative sessions, committee meetings, or hearings.  At noon, we will move to First Presbyterian Church for a soup lunch with legislators.  This is an excellent opportunity to meet with them in a relaxed setting and learn about their priorities while sharing your own.

This event is open to anyone – women and men, those who are members of United Methodist Women and those who are not.  So invite a friend, neighbor, or newcomer to the area or to your church.

Registration is $25 for both days (supper and lunch included) or $15 for one day.  Scholarships are available and in-home housing can be arranged upon request.
