Powering Up: How to Create Change through Legislation 

A day-long, peer organized, statewide conference

Organized by: Vermont Federation of Families, Vermont Psychiatric Survivors, and Vermont Recovery Network 

Join us for an exciting day of learning about legislative advocacy!

The conference is designed to increase knowledge of the legislative process, build stronger advocacy skills, and enhance the collective power of people in recovery from substance use; young adults and families experiencing social, emotional or behavioral challenges; and consumers, ex-patients, and psychiatric survivors.

The day includes:

  • Keynote by Former Vermont Governor Madeleine Kunin 
  • Panel presentation about the legislative process
  • Storytelling workshop with Sue Schmidt (http://www.sueschmidtcomedy.com/)
  • Panel about the work of the coalition that worked to pass S.3 during the last legislative session.
