Current legislation has been advocated on behalf of over 12 million event professionals yet many are unaware and quite frankly, illiterate on legislative knowledge in general. We often don't understand the government, are intimidated by it, and depending on your background, flat out don't trust it. Both mistrust and illiteracy will cause “it doesn't affect me” behavior, particularly with disenfranchised communities. 

Legislative Literacy is a podcast series intended to establish legislative literacy, dispel governmental myths and ultimately create a space for listeners to gain bite-sized information empowering them to take action. Don’t miss this series addressing relative event industry legislation at the National and Local levels!
