4 March – Legislations & Libations

It is fair to say that the JLSD ladies are the best and brightest, but do we all know how our government works?

JLSD’s State Public Affairs Delegates understand your pain, and are here to train our ladies to talk politics. Join “Legislation and Libations” on Saturday, March 4th from 10:00am – 2:00pm, at the JLSD house to train yourself to be politically savvy. Get a California Government 101 run-through, learn more about SPAC-authored (written) bills, and analyze a bill all over mimosas, just like the pros in DC do it!

Assemblyman Todd Gloria will be the keynote speaker. Training credit will be given to attendees. Sign up on the JLSD training website here.
