THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD!!
Women For: Orange County offers this event to the public every year to provide attendees with the means to influence policy decisions by writing letters to their legislators. It’s also a great opportunity for participants to experience first-hand what informed citizen involvement in government is all about.
More than 50 different organizations and advocacy groups will be represented with information regarding some of today’s most vital issues, including education, health care, human and civil rights and the environment. Attendees visit the various tables and then voice their opinions by writing letters to government and corporate decision-makers in the hopes of bringing about constructive change. There is no cost for this event; Women For: Orange County will supply the post cards, stationery, postage, refreshments and parking. Last year, 300 attendees generated over 2,000 letters and postcards.
