Building on its recent success in passing an excellent shared parenting law, NPO of Utah trained members on the basics of lobbying. This was done to power up its next legislative drive.

The free training was held Saturday, January 16 at The Safety Consortium Building on West Lawndale in Salt Lake City.

Dan Deuel, who was instrumental in passing the shared parenting bill, presented much of the training, assisted by Dave Daniels and Janet Robins.

As Janet said, “The public, the parents who have been beat up by the mis-justices in the court system are our most valuable resources. We need you to join the fight and learn how to Lobby to make a difference!”

I cannot agree more strongly. If you expect reform to happen magically without your effort, you are not a player, you are a dreamer.

The training was videotaped, and we are hoping to make it available to other chapters.
