Ever wanted to know how a bill becomes a law? The Colorado Immigrants Rights Coalition will train attendees on the legislative process in Colorado — how bills are introduced and moved through committees all the way through to the governor’s desk. Strategies and guidance for influencing and supporting our legislators through committee testimonies, phone calls, letters, e-mails, letters to editors, etc. will be presented. The tuition equity bill being introduced by Senator Chris Romer will ensure that all graduates of Colorado high schools have access to in-state tuition. The bill will be discussed and used as a model for the training session.
