Clark County Court Appointed Special Advocate is hosting multiple one-hour online informational sessions for interested volunteers or community members who want to learn more about the program. CASA volunteers advocate for the best interest of children who have come into the state’s care as a result of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. All are welcome to register for the online session. Remaining sessions are at noon on Nov. 21 and 24.

To register, visit casaclarkcounty.org/casa-information-sessions-2. Find out more by visiting casaclarkcounty.org/what-we-do/our-programs/casa/what-is-casa or email ganderson@ywcaclarkcounty.org.

The nonpartisan League of Women Voters of Washington is organizing free “train-the-trainer” sessions to teach you how to help prepare residents to tell the five-member Washington State Redistricting Commission late next Spring how district boundaries for elected officials should be drawn. The League is recruiting volunteers from broad cultural, ethnic, political and religious backgrounds to train Speak-up School leaders to prepare the public to testify. Once trained, you’ll be able to facilitate Speak-Up School sessions in early Spring that will prepare people to testify before the commissioners, who will take testimony as they travel throughout the state in late Spring. To register to be a train-the-trainer, go to speakup.brownpapertickets.com.
