Educate Our State is a grassroots movement; so spreading the word through person-to-person contact is an important part of what we do. For more information on attending or hosting an Educate Me! Event in your area, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will let you know about what is going on in your area and/or assign a point person to support you through the “hosting” process.
There are a few different styles of Educate Me events dependent on your location, the number of attendees, and amount of time. Or maybe you’re already holding an event and would like us to come and talk; we can do that, too!
