C. Advocacy 101: Advocating for Cervical Cancer at the Statehouse
Advocacy 101 will offer the opportunity to learn how laws passed at the statehouse impact cervical
cancer prevention and control, how a bill becomes a law, basics of advocacy, and learn firsthand
from a lawmaker about how you can make a difference at the statehouse. The workshop will
