“Did you know that you have a loud & clear voice in the Arizona Legislature?
The Arizona Legislature is where policies on education, healthcare, free and fair elections, criminal justice reform and the environment are made – the issues that affect your life and the lives of your friends and families. A new session of the Arizona Legislature opened in Phoenix on Monday, January 11.
The REQUEST TO SPEAK system (RTS) is a way for you to comment – from the comfort of your home! – on legislation that is pending in Legislative Committees.
Arizona Civics 101 and the Request to Speak System
Sunday, January 17
The Pima County Democratic Party is inviting you to a informal, virtual session to learn about the basics of the Arizona Legislature and to learn how you can get an activated account on the Request to Speak system. You do not have to be a registered voter to use RTS.
The Republican majority in the state legislature is razor thin this year. Join us to learn how you can add your voice to encourage good bills and to comment and disapprove of bad bills – bills that run counter to the values that we as Democrats hold dear.
No registration required. Just use this link on Jan 17, at 2pm.
