JOIN US: Virtual Advocacy Day at the Capitol on April 5
On January 13, 2022 by Matt Steele
Join us on April 5 for a day of virtual advocacy at the Capitol featuring expert training from our public affairs team, opportunities to meet with your legislator, and times to share with colleagues from around the state about your successes and challenges in serving seniors.
This year, the Legislature is still conducting most of the state's business virtually, and our day at the Capitol will follow suit.
When you register, here's what you can expect:
- Before April 5: Receive resources to advocate. We will share all the resources you need to share your story with lawmakers. Be assured you'll have talking points, issue briefs, and how-to’s delivered to your inbox so you’ll feel prepared to advocate.
- April 5, 9 – 10 a.m.: Connect with advocates. We will join together for one hour to connect with other advocates, get any additional need-to-know information, and prepare to advocate for seniors and their caregivers.
- April 5, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.: Meet with your lawmakers. We will schedule meetings with a lawmaker that represents your setting. If you have any specific accommodations we should keep in mind, we can do our best to accommodate. Just let us know.
- April 5, 4:15 – 5 p.m.: Share your experience. This is an opportunity to reflect with your colleagues and discuss the best practices for following-up on the issues you brought up with your legislators.·
Staff, residents, volunteers, and board members are all encouraged to attend Day at the Capitol, so please feel free to share this invitation with others.
Registration is now open. There is no cost to participate in Day at the Capitol. By registering once, you’ll be signed up to participate in all sessions. During the registration process, you can share if you would like us to schedule meetings with the lawmaker representing your setting and any additional information you would like us to consider when setting up your meetings.
Please register by March 21 to ensure we have time to schedule meetings with your lawmakers.
We hear it from lawmakers all the time: what matters most to them as they weigh issues and make decisions at the State Capitol is their constituents. That’s why your voice matters! It’s time to be heard.
If you have questions about the Day at the Capitol or need any special accommodations, please contact Matt Steele at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-659-1430.
