Now that the 2018 elections are over and Michigan's 100th Legislative session has begun, you may find yourself asking "What comes next?" Join PWA as we welcome Rep. Jon Hoadley to answer this and many other pressing questions!

- What "flashpoints" to look for during the first 6 months of this new legislative term​

-How to build power as voters and activists​

-The process of lawmaking in Lansing and how interested citizens can keep track of consequential bills before they become law

-How to most effectively lobby lawmakers on issues that are important to you

Rep. Hoadley will also take audience questions and share his personal experiences as a progressive activist and lawmaker.
