This event is organized by the League of Women Voters of Needham.

This session will present materials and strategies for high school teachers to use to enable students to select an issue, research bills before the legislature, and develop and execute an advocacy plan. These materials include a Student Advocacy Guide and a set of short videos.
We will also present a structure for a civics showcase where students can make their pitch to state legislators, town officials, and the general public. We will also discuss the successful school / community collaboration with the League of Women Voters for this project.
