Citizens Guide to Online Advocacy For The 2022 West Virginia Legislative Session
We know there is no real democracy when the public is not actively participating in the legislative process. #useyourvoice That’s why we’re calling upon BBG readers to speak loudly through your online platforms to ensure your representatives still hear how their policy decisions will impact your life.
We hope the 2022 West Virginia Legislative Session Citizen’s Guide To Online Advocacy will encourage readers to use their online voices. Please just click the link above or image below.
The 2022 edition of the BBG Citizen's Guide to Online Advocacy includes a comprehensive list of all the current West Virginia Members of the Senate and House and provides all of their contact information including socials with information on how to advocate via social media.
Our guide is just one of many products and events that center political literacy. We are proud to co-host the Young, Gifted and Black in West Virginia Policy event Feb. 10th, 2020
