Discover the Public's Power in the Legislative Process!

News Release from LRB Hawaii

Pick up tips and tools to help you add your voice to Hawaii's lawmaking process at the Public Access Room (PAR)'s free workshop, offered at numerous locations this fall.

The workshop/presentation "Your Voice!" is about an hour in length and covers the Legislature and how to effectively participate in the legislative process. Topics covered by the workshop include:

  • Tips and techniques on effective lobbying, testimony, and communicating with Senators and Representatives
  • Understanding the legislative process, deadlines, and power dynamics
  • Easy to use tools available on the Legislature’s website
  • Helpful handouts, guides, and resources

The flexible nature of the workshop provides a useful start for newcomers, as well as new information and inspiration for veterans of the legislative process. While participants are encouraged to register for the free workshops, drop-ins are always welcome. To register, get additional information, or to schedule additional or advanced workshops during these annual visits, call 808/587-0478 or email par@capitol.hawaii.gov.
