Register for Lobby Day!

 

Maybe you are interested in politics, but aren’t sure where to jump in. Or maybe you’ve never voted before and don’t know what a legislative district is. Or maybe you’ve met with your legislators before, perhaps many times.

Whoever you are, Lutheran Lobby Day is for you.

WHo

Laypeople, pastors and bishops will convene virtually for our second annual advocacy day with the California State Legislature. While we regret that we cannot gather in person at the State Capitol, we are excited that gathering virtually allows more people to participate.

WHy advocacy?

God calls us through baptism to strive for peace and justice through all the earth. Our advocacy will focus on COVID-19 relief for California’s most impacted communities. Your voice is needed. No experience required!

How do I prepare?

Two training webinars will be offered prior to Lobby Day on May 6 at 12:00 pm and at 6:00 pm PDT. All registrants will receive information about how to participate in one of these trainings.

is there a fee?

The event is free of charge, but donations are always welcome. There will be breaks throughout the schedule.

Can I promote this event?

Yes! Please feel free to promote this event in your synods, churches, and church groups. You can find a flier and a sample email here.
