League, library offer workshop on how to testify at public meetings

The  League of Women Voters, in partnership with the Fort Vancouver Regional Library system, is offering a workshop to help residents who want to testify at public meetings.

League members Andrea Marzette and Cynthia Gardner will lead the workshop from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Nov. 9, via Zoom.  

A spinoff from the League’s “Speak Up School” training for redistricting, this workshop is designed to help speakers organize their thoughts and improve the quality, content and delivery of their testimony.

In the first hour, attendees will be introduced to tools they can use to develop their testimony. The last half hour is optional for those who would like to practice their testimony and delivery with individual coaches. 

Registration closes at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 9. To register, visit fvrl.librarymarket.com/index.php/speak-school-how-testify-public-forum
