2021 Virtual California Lobby Day
Wednesday, May 26, 2021
9:00am – 5:30pm
Take Action with Us This Lobby Day!
Our Lobby Day 2021 priorities and bills are strongly connected to our mission of advancing economic justice and equity for low-income women. Before our Virtual Lobby Day, we will hold special zoom training to ensure LA section attendees are familiar with all the bills, learn about the talking points, discuss and assign meeting roles, and much more!
We will have four options for you to join us for one session and get prepared for Lobby Day.
Stay tuned for more information!
Here is a glance at our schedule for Lobby Day 2021
(All meetings/gatherings held via Zoom or by phone)
- 9:00 am-12:00 pm: Join other NCJW California advocates to hear from the Executive Director of the legendary Equal Rights Advocates. They will talk about the great coalition they lead. You will also hear from speakers from organizations leading the fight in each of our issue areas and much more! We have almost all of our speakers lined up and they are A-team experts! They include Noreen Farrell- Executive Director of Equal Rights Advocates; Jessica Bartholow-Chief of Staff for Senator Nancy Skinner; Shannon Hovis, Director- NARAL Pro-Choice California; Mary Ignatius- Parent Voices Statewide Coordinator; and Kristin Power, Vice President Policy and Advocacy-Alliance for Children’s Rights.
- 12:30 pm-5:30 pm: Join other Los Angeles Section advocates for virtual “meetings” (either via Zoom or telephone) with legislators and/or legislative staff from their districts. Each meeting generally lasts for 20-30 minutes. While we encourage everyone to participate in the meeting with their state senator and assembly member, you can attend as many meetings as you like!
