The overall goal of this program is to provide legislators with the opportunity to learn about FIRST and encourage them to share this information with their communities. This will allow us to further grow the FIRST programs throughout Wisconsin.
On February 6th, 2021, the FIRST Wisconsin Advocacy Committee hosted their first State Advocacy Day.
FIRST Wisconsin has been engaging in advocacy since 2017 through attendance at the National Advocacy Conference. After the 2019 National Advocacy Conference, participants of various FTC and FRC teams in Wisconsin formed the FIRST Wisconsin Advocacy Committee. Since their formation, the committee has been working to engage with our State Legislature.
