Should you present the above to a group of people, some might reply with genuine curiosity as to how the Federal Government works and how their work in DC translates to the states. Others might reply with a succinct “It does? Heh!” and roll their eyes. It all depends on who you ask and lucky for you, this August, the one that will be here before you know it, I will be discussing How Washington Works and How Women in the States Can Make a Difference at the BlogHer Conference.
If you’ve ever wondered how to get in touch with your member of Congress or your Senator or how to leverage your voice as a voting constituent, then this will be for you. Or you can come and watch me hem and haw my way through how a bill becomes a law and maybe I’ll sing a little School House Rock for you. Either way, this is my seventh time attending a BlogHer conference and I’m nervous. So if you’re nervous too then we can have a big nervous party together. It'll be fun.
