      Come Alive: Attend the 2004 Issue Briefing and Advocacy Training!

      Do you want to become a more influential political activist? Are you tired
      of reading about issues that matter to you after they've already been
      decided? Does the legislative process seem intimidating? Would you be
      interested in lobbying if only you knew how?
