    • Come lobby at the Capitol. Check our website for info on Lobby Days in Sacramento or let us know when you’ll be in town. The legislature is in session from January through August – check here for the legislature's calendars.
    • Lobby in your home district by visiting your legislators and their staff in their regional office.  Find contact information here.  It can be just as effective and sometimes easier as coming to Sacramento.  We can connect you with others in your area and provide support as you put together a group to visit your legislator.
