Mark Your Calendars and join us for these important advocacy events!
In-District visits can be very effective, as our legislators are back in their districts in an extended recess and want to hear from their constituents. In addition, this opportunity can be very impactful in our advocacy efforts as many representatives are getting ready to start their reelection campaigns, and others are preparing their legislative agendas for 2022. This is the Time When Your Voice Will Matter Most!
Our In-District visits are taking place entirely online! Here is a glance at the Advocacy meetings scheduled thus far, including our monthly Advocacy Working Group meeting. To attend any of these meetings or for any other advocacy-related information, email Nabila.
