MLA Connect Advocacy Hour

Thursday, November 18, 2021
10:00 - 11:00 AM

MLA’s Advocacy Hour Conversations are an opportunity for the library community to learn more about MLA's advocacy and legislative priorities including funding, elections, property taxes, literacy, internet access, privacy, intellectual freedom and more. Each month, we will address a new topic and share any pending legislation introduced in the House or Senate that could impact the Michigan library community. Open discussion and Q & A will follow this interview-style agenda.

To set the stage for the remainder of 2021, we hope you will join us on Thursday, November 18 at 10:00 AM as we interview Bob DeVries, MLA Lobbyist, and Jessica Keyser, Chair of the MLA Advocacy and Legislative Committee, on the state of libraries in Michigan and MLA's 2021-2022 legislative action agenda. We will hit the ground running on the Open Meetings Act, Headlee Amendment, Election Scheduling, Protection of Penal Fines, and where we stand on bills that challenge intellectual freedom rights.
