Did you know there is personal care products legislation under debate?
Our founder, Kristi Marsh, will attend meetings with committee members in Washington D.C. in March, sharing with them that yes, there is a building interest in strong federal personal care products regulation.
(Give us a big 'oh, yes there is!')
Kristi shares that even the term 'lobbying' was intimidated her when she started. Pushing herself out of her comfort zone she came to understand that lobbying can be simply sharing your story with elected leaders. It is still daunting for her to be present at events like the upcoming visit to the Capitol in March, but she seems to have found a renewed surge of protectiveness. Possibly due to a growing Savvy army? We will hear more about that adventure soon.
Now, let's talk about a possible adventure for you.
Adventures in learning, anyone?
We have an opportunity to recommend a handful of Savvy followers to participate in training calls offered by the Breast Cancer Fund's Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. We would like to know if you are interested?
Who should attend?
- Those curious to learn more about what is happening with personal care products legislation.
- Those who may want to participate in local, state or national events in the future.
- Those who are not sure if this is for them, but will give it a try.
- Bloggers and writers who would like to understand more now in order to share forth later.
- Those interested in speaking to groups.
Would you like to enroll in one, two or all three of these? Email us quickly so we can get you in!
