While we were all busy preparing to go on spring break, the Senate launched the first-ever Outreach Week. Spearheaded by Speaker G.Matt Greco and Associate Senator Mae Hougo, the week was designed to raise awareness of all things Senate-related and of how constituents can be better served and more involved. It was a huge success! Activities included live-streaming our meeting, creating informational graphics on our social media sites, sponsoring Concern for a Cupcake, and implementing a new initiative: Slide Into Our DMs.
