Join us for a basic overview of how a bill becomes a law at state and federal levels. We’ll talk about the roles lobbyists, citizen advocates, and the government each play in developing public policy. Learn about the players within each of the three branches of government:

Governors and State-level departments (Executive Branch)
Legislators and their staffs (Legislative Branch)
The Judiciary (Judicial Branch)
This is part 1 of 3 in the Effective Legislative Advocacy webinar series. This series will provide animal welfare professionals with actionable ideas to increase capacity to help animals through public policy. Public policy is a critical way to influence and impact animal welfare in the long term at local, state, and federal levels. These sessions will be location-generic though state-specific legislation will be used as examples.

This live and recorded program is approved for 1 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credit.
