NCSE is pleased to announce the second of a new series of on-line workshops aimed at broadening and deepening the networks that make our work possible. The workshop focuses on lobbying policymakers — legislators, members of state boards of education, members of local school boards, and the like — and features NCSE's Josh Rosenau, the ACLU's Dena Sher, and Oklahomans for Excellence in Science Education's Vic Hutchison.
