For our first meeting of 2023, we are excited to announce that we will be joined by Darla Gonzalez, the Grassroots Director Extraordinaire of the Arizona Free Enterprise Club. Darla will share what to expect from the Arizona State Legislature this spring, and how we can help get conservative voices heard at the Capitol.
Darla has built and trained an ARMY of grassroots citizen’s lobbyists – 10,000+ – that keep track of legislation on a weekly basis across the state. The citizen lobbyists give their opinions in various ways from using the RTS (Request to Speak) system all the way to speaking in person at the Capitol. AZFREE has been collaborating with Republican Legislators to develop a strategy for the challenging upcoming Legislative Session. She will share this as well as specific actions that we can take to make a difference in our communities. She may also have some news about how AZFREE and other organizations like our own AZFRW are collaborating statewide to stop bad legislation, curb the governor’s agenda, and prepare for 2024.
Darla Gonzalez is the Grassroots Director for The Arizona Free Enterprise Club. Darla has worked in Grassroots for the last 25 years. Darla is 1st Vice Chair of her local AZFRW club in Maricopa County.
This meeting will be a great kick-off to 2023! Be sure to join us at Coffee Exchange at 11:30 on the 26th!
