The democratic process dictates that citizens act on matters that affect the society and environment in which they live. This bulletin uses five case studies where individuals utilized the wealth of knowledge that is Cornell University through the Cooperative Extension System to influence local environmental policy and create a child care council. This bulletin is a wonderful resource for Extension Educators or anyone wishing to teach empowerment to shape and affect local policy.
