You have to understand how City government works in order to make it work for you. Join our Public Comment Training to learn how to actively participate in the democratic process of local governance and make your voice heard on the issues you care about. We the People - the public - have a special power in our democracy, and when we learn how to wield that power effectively, we can get results.
Our virtual Public Comment Training will cover the nuts-and-bolts of how to view and understand Council meeting agendas, submit a speaker card, and assert your democratic rights during a meeting. We’ll also talk about why public comment is so important, and how we can use this tactic to achieve our shared political goals.
