We need your help to show up and remind legislators that we are here to fight back against bills that vilify or hurt our people.

Come out at 9 am on Thursdays to room 132* in the Capitol where you’ll get a brief training on how to talk to your legislators, as well as information about bills or issues that are being worked on. From there, you’ll have a chance to talk to your representatives. We hope to have you out by 11am!

No need to sign up or RSVP, just show up! Please be sure to bring a photo ID to get into the Capitol.
