Education about how our government works, from the local level to the Federal Level, is imperative. Every citizen needs to feel confident that their voice is getting heard and that they are getting represented. Campaigning for what we want is an age-old technique (we won't call it protesting ;) )
Our local governments are where we, as citizens, can have the most significant impact. Participation is vital and encourages others to participate. Learn how to get up to date on local issues and how to participate in your local government. We can't be sure our voice is getting heard unless we raise our voices!
By forming a network of education resources, we can support each other in spreading knowledge and essential information. Every election opportunity we get offered, we should use to make our voice constructively heard. To vote intelligently means you must get educated on the issues.
