For our last EmpowerHER of 2019, we’ll partner with the Black Professional Network for their West Wing Initiative for “What Just Happened: 2019 Legislative Debrief.”
Whether you’re into politics or not, it affects your life. Don’t believe us? So many bills regulating power of attorney to traffic violations and even the ability to increase the value of residual properties as a result of installing a renewable energy source device has been passed. Learn what just happened this legislative session and you might just be surprised.
Hosted by:
Kamalie Grant, West Wing Coordinator

Learning Objectives:

• Know which amendments passed and died in this legislative session
• Obtain a better understanding of how state bills are created and passed
• Gain an understanding of how key amendments have impacted your community

Thanks to a generous grant from Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and the Dolphins players, YWCA of Greater Miami-Dade, Inc. is a 2018-2019 grantee of the Football Unites program. With this funding, the rebranded Empower HER series will engage women and girls to be social advocates and commit their time, talent and treasure to achieving social justice in Miami. The series will empower women through community building, self-care, and empowerment by teaching them how to shift unjust systems. Empower HER will focus on the policies, systems, and institutions in the Miami region and beyond. The goal of the series is to make sure all systems work for everyone they serve, women and men.
