Looking to be more involved with city, county, and regional government for your community? Then Elders in Action’s CIVICS 101 is for you. Sponsored by the Multnomah Bar Foundation, participants will learn about the structure and operation of various levels of government, engage with elected officials, and how to advocate for causes in the five-session training series.
