ITUP Legislative Toolkit: State Government 101

May 24, 2024

ITUP provided legislative training for the San Diego In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Advisory Committee. Jana Wright, MPH, ITUP’s Director of Policy, delivered an insightful overview of the California legislative process, emphasizing effective engagement strategies with legislative bills. Additionally, Jana provided a timely overview of the California state budget process, particularly relevant given the recent announcement of the Governor’s May Revise.

ITUP believes that, collectively, we achieve more when everyone is celebrated, empowered, and included in creating solutions for a healthier California. That’s why we provide technical assistance, such as legislative training and policy toolkits, to help anyone engage with the California legislature.

Below you will find the legislative toolkit as a resource:
