Make sure your voice is the one heard by legislators this year.
Never been to Advocacy Day and wondering what your day will look like?
What's in store for the morning (9:30 - noon): The program begins at 9:30 am. Begin your day with a primer on our legislative priorities, get lobbying tips from the pros, and hear from our Legislative Panelists, including Sen. Steve Litzow, Sen. Steve Hobbs, and Rep. Luis Moscoso. We will also hear from Sen. Andy Billig and Rep. Marko Liias on specific pieces of our legislative priorities.
It gets even better in the afternoon (Noon - 4:30 pm): Enjoy a complimentary lunch followed by meetings with your legislators. You'll have an opportunity to participate in break-out sessions, as well as attending committee hearings in the House and Senate Transportation Committees.
