Legislative and Grassroots Workgroup

The PAR Legislative/Grassroots Workgroup was created to expand PAR’s grassroots advocacy, particularly around DSP compensation; develop a strong and effective grassroots network throughout the Commonwealth that will get the attention of our elected officials and increase the success of PAR’s DSP compensation advocacy initiative; and review pieces of legislation that may be of interest to PAR and our members and develop recommendations to the Board. This workgroup is the 3rd prong on PAR's Advocacy Structure, which includes the Advocacy Council and the Communications Collaborative.
