ALICE (The American Legislative Initiative for Community Empowerment) will create an avenue for average citizens to engage with policy-making that affects their everyday lives. Katie, Trish, and their team are passionate about empowering people who are often under-represented to identify their needs and desires, then to equip them to research, draft, and lobby for necessary legislation to improve their neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools. These ladies live and breathe political policy, yet their warmth and relatability make them the perfect liaisons.
