The “Take the Lead” training series was created to help aspiring and experienced Black leaders expand their civic, civil, and political engagement within their local community and across the state. We believe understanding the fundamental structure of government and how to engage in that process is an essential component to holding our elected leaders accountable and producing the results we need in our community. As a participant in this virtual event, you will be trained on the basics of the Florida Legislative Session, how bills are passed, and organizing techniques. You will also hear from legislative leaders about what to expect in the upcoming 2023 Legislative Session.
