How to Educate, Advocate & Create Change through Story with Vermont Story Lab
Learn the basics of telling your story to advocate for change. This interactive Hands-on workshop will help you understand what the core concepts and structure of story are. We also will explore how to incorporate advocacy into your story so you spur action with your words. We will have opportunity to practice sharing your story, crafting and polishing it, and getting feedback on all the ways we can use and share it.

Making the State Budget Work for all Vermonters with VT Public Assets Institute and One Vermont
The Legislature appropriates nearly $6 billion each year, but there is little (or no) opportunity for Vermonters to understand or have meaningful input into this process. This session will provide both. Public Assets will give a report on the state budget process and revenue forecasts. Workshop attendees will then work on looking ahead and setting priorities to develop budget proposals that address the present and future needs of Vermonters. These proposals will be fine-tuned so that they can be delivered to the governor and the Legislature.
You can join us for the morning and afternoon sessions or one of the two. Pleas indicate if you will be joining us for lunch:
