Editor’s Note: The following announcement comes from Hopkins Public Schools.
The Hopkins Legislative Action Coalition (LAC) is currently seeking new members. This grassroots group assists Hopkins Public Schools with education-related legislation by developing, proposing and advocating for legislative positions.
The LAC meets twice a month on Fridays at 11 a.m. Some of the activities the group works on include:
- Developing positions and setting priorities for the Coalition advocacy efforts.
- Communicating positions and priorities to local legislators and soliciting support.
- Tracking legislation and alerting members when action is needed.
Community members who wish to join should be willing to commit to the Coalition for one year. Qualified individuals should have communication and organization skills, an interest in the legislative process and grassroots advocacy, the ability to work well with others, and a passion for Hopkins Public Schools.
