Making An Impact: Citizen Watchdog Training

December 23, 2011

You’ve heard of egregious examples of waste, fraud, and abuse in Oregon and in all levels of government. It seems as though there is a scandal lurking around every capital corner.

But how can we hold our elected officials accountable? It’s up to you and I to become citizen watchdogs.

Come to a Citizen Watchdog training session in Salem, and learn how to identify inconsistencies and half-truths in government, and expose them for the lies they are.

Please join AFPF-Oregon, Oregon Capital Watch, and Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity on Jan. 31-Feb. 1 at the Keizer Renaissance Inn for an in-depth training on how to be an effective citizen watchdog. Click here to register.

For only $25 per person, you will learn:
-How to become an information activist
-How to use investigative reporting tools and skills
-How to impact the local government budgeting process
-How to hold elected officials accountable through social media

After the training, you can put those skills into action as we visit the Oregon State Capitol on the first day of legislative session. You will get a firsthand look at the day-to-day life in the state capitol, and how you can become a part of the process.

More details and an exciting speaker announcement still to come. Seating is limited.
