CEBV is a civic leader in promoting engagement in state and local government in Arizona. We regularly give trainings on using Request to Speak, writing Letters to the Editor, testifying at the legislature, shaping messaging to persuade and activate, and much more.
In 2022, our work centers on electing the legislature that reflects our state's beautiful diversity. We are actively supporting state and local candidates who will represent their communities and fight for democratic values.
We are nonpartisan but not neutral. We advocate for a wide variety of progressive values, from women's equality and health care to gun safety, equitable access to the ballot, public education, criminal justice reform, and more. We support elected officials and candidates who represent and work for our positions.
While the Legislature is in session, we hold weekly Request to Speak Happy Hours via Zoom. Drop in to ask questions about upcoming legislative actions, get help with RTS, and exchange news & information.
