This training on state legislative sessions helps scholars foster evidence-based legislation and provides practical steps in engaging with elected officials. Participants learn about state legislatures, the cycle of state legislation, and how and when they can engage. Researchers will be given concrete tips on how to track legislation, determine who in government is the proper target for outreach, and build relationships with legislators.
