About the DVD Recording

Typically we offer complete DVD recordings of our events. This event, however, includes community outreach and legislative activism training, which will include information that we do not want to broadcast to the world. Therefore, the DVD recording of this event will only include Sheila’s presentation. We plan to turn the recordings of the training segments of this event into shorter videos that our chapter leaders can share with local groups at meetups throughout the state.
