Congress 101

This pre-conference gives participants a unique view of how Congress works (and doesn’t work). David Bradley will first take you through how a bill becomes a law, then he will lead you through a one-of-a-kind game where you will role-play the legislative process. Congress 101 will help you better understand Congress, special interests, the Tea Party and prepare you for your Hill meetings that week.

Congress 101 is vital for anyone who is serious about Community Action in Congress. Space is limited for this updated pre-conference where you will learn about legislation in the 114th Congress. It will be held 10:00AM- 4:00PM on Tuesday.
