HONOLULU (AP) - A non-profit organization focused on parenting is holding a workshop to teach citizens about the art of influencing public policy in Hawaii.
The workshop held by the group PARENTS will be held Thursday morning in Honolulu.
It will be led by state Sen. Glenn Wakai, state Rep. Karl Rhoads and former Democratic Party Chairman Alex Santiago.
They'll talk about the current members leading committees in Hawaii and tools to navigate the legislative system.
The cost is $50 per person but students get in for $40.
The Public Access Room at the Hawaii Legislature also hosts workshops to demystify the lawmaking process, but those workshops are free.
