Get IN-VOLVED: Politics 101 Challenge

We designed a ten-week challenge series to help Hoosiers get to know a little more about their elected officials and the policymaking process! Participants receive weekly, bite-sized challenges via Zoom/video to learn when and how they can participate in the legislative process, how to use tools like the website, how to write and place op eds, and other strategies to make their voices heard. Completing the weekly challenge successfully enters participants to win a gift card.

Our first challenge series launched on January 8th, 2024. Sign up for our newsletter to receive notice of future challenges.

Tell your Lawmaker about a Priority You'd Like Them To Support

You don't have to wait to make your voice heard. Speaking up on an issue is as easy as 1, 2, 3! 

  1. Find your state lawmakers
  2. Learn how easy it is to make a call to your state lawmaker with this 3-minute video!
  3. Make the call! If there isn't a specific bill on the issue you care about or the legislature is not currently in session, you can still reach out. Let your lawmakers know what issue you'd like them to support or work on and why. You can also request an in-person meeting to talk through an issue you care about in greater detail. 

Thank you for getting involved!
