Who: Anyone is welcome. Register now (and invite others who might like to join you to register too).
When: February 14, 2019, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Where: State Capitol, 700 Capitol Ave, Frankfort, KY 40601, Annex Room 346

2019 Kentucky Advocacy Day Agenda:

8:30-9:00: Breakfast/Registration in Annex Room 346
9-9:30 am: Issue Overview/Q&A
9:30am-Approx 12:30 pm: Attend scheduled meetings with your lawmakers

What will we be talking about with your legislators?

Water Access in Schools
With your help, we will be working on a policy that will ensure all newly constructed school include water bottle filling stations.  

Tobacco Retail Preemption
We will work to repeal preemption regarding the sale and distribution of tobacco products and e-cigarettes. This legislation would restore local control to cities and counties allowing, not requiring, them to pass local ordinances that address the sale and distribution of tobacco products and e-cigarettes. This would enable cities and counties to raise the age to purchase tobacco to 21, if they choose.

Register today, forward this invitation to a friend, coworker, class or other group and join us for an exciting day to make a difference in Kentucky!

Directions to Capitol (PLEASE BRING PHOTO ID)
From I-64, you’ll take exit 53 (Frankfort/Lawrenceburg) and go toward Frankfort (north on 127). You will go through a few stop lights and then turn RIGHT onto 676, the East-West Connector. After you go through the flashing light, turn LEFT at the next stop light (onto 420 North). Follow approximately 1 mile then turn LEFT into the Capitol Parking Garage. You can park on any of the first 4 floors (actually numbered 6-3). The upper levels are reserved for legislators. Take the elevator to the ground level and walk across to the Capitol Annex.Our meeting room is Capitol Annex, Third Floor, Room 346.

In the unlikely event that the capitol garage is full, continue up the ramp to the top of the parking structure where there are also parking spaces.  If you exit the ground level parking lot, you may drive around the capitol (the road is one-way toward the right) where there is on-street parking on Capital Avenue and several side streets in front of the capitol building.  If you choose this option, you’ll need to enter the capitol and then go to the basement and walk through the tunnel to get to the Capitol Annex.
