DEMOCRACY 101:
A Civic Action Primer

August 28 and December 6, 2017- 6 to 8 p.m.

A spirit of activism not seen since at least 2008 is sweeping across America. Motivated by the 2016 election campaign and its outcome, people on both sides of the political aisle are energized to become active in the political process – either to support the policies of the current administration at the national, state or local level, or to oppose them. But how does that work? What can citizens do to make a difference in the political world?

In the fall of 2017, the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College and the League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area  presented two free public workshops where attendees learned the basics of local government structure, policy-making, and civic engagement.
