Werk The Lege Community Teach-In

March 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

On Saturday, March 11, the ACLU of Alabama is hosting our annual Werk The Lege event at The Sanctuary in Montgomery, Alabama. All attendees will have an opportunity to learn with and from fellow organizers, advocates, and everyday Alabamians who want to engage with the Alabama legislative process. 
We encourage anyone who wants to learn about Alabama's legislature to sign up. No background in organizing is required. Food and refreshments will be served. If you need any accommodations, please email [email protected]

Over the past years, Werk The Lege has trained and grown a community of passionate advocates committed to demanding meaningful and progressive policy decisions from our state lawmakers. 

We deserve to have elected officials who champion legislation that aims to improve the lives of all Alabama residents. And we believe that any person has the power to call for this.

Below are the topics that will be covered throughout the day:

  • An Introduction to the Alabama Legislature (Lege)
  • The Prison Industrial Complex
  • The History of Alabama Prisons
  • Abortion Rights
  • Trans Rights
  • Parole Reform
  • Break-out groups facilitated by Alabama coalition leaders
