There are only 100 spots per session. If you register now you will receive materials for the symposium, be able to join the presenters for a Q&A, and receive recordings of each session. If you are unable to join, the symposium will also be available on MBPC’s Facebook live and recordings will be posted to our website.
This free symposium provides tribal leaders and advocates with information on how the state budget process works and how people can get involved to secure important investments in Indian Country. Over the past few legislative sessions, the state has invested state funds into programs like indigenous language preservation, tribal colleges, Indian Country Economic Development, suicide prevention, and Medicaid expansion.
Hear from experts on some of the state-funded programs that impact Indian Country. Get the details on what they are, why they are important, and where they stand going into the legislative session. Get an overview of how a bill becomes law, how to track legislative activity online, and learn how to get involved in the process. Review examples of legislative wins and learn how they apply to future opportunities.
Who should attend: state and tribal elected officials, program directors, tribal-led advocacy groups, community organizers, educators and tribal college students, and others from Indian Country who are interested in learning more about becoming active in the state budget and legislative process.
