CPO 1 Meetings

 

UPCOMING MEETINGS AND EVENTS

Join CPO 1 at their next meeting:
Tue., Jun. 11, 7 p.m.

(All CPOs are welcome to attend!)
 

On the agenda:

  • Citizen Advocacy 101: Making Change Happen
    Presented by Donna Cohen

    Donna Cohen teaches Civics for Adults to inspire and guide people to civic and political engagement. She helps you understand how government works and how to translate your concerns into effective community action.

    She begins with some historical context—the "Gilded Age” in America, when democracy was threatened by monopolies, and how we made some positive changes in response. She will tell how she brought community members together to transform St. Johns from a dying community that had become a highway for large trucks into a thriving and vibrant town center. She will bring suggestions for ways to educate yourself about how things work, and how to be an effective advocate for change.

    A teacher and librarian, Donna is now focused on promulgating bi-partisan workshops for adults that fill in gaps in civic and political understanding which have caused widespread “civic illiteracy” and hasty acceptance of unchecked information. She is actively involved in various civic/political projects.
