We will do our best to arrange a meeting time with your lawmakers. You will attend meetings as part of a group and will meet with lawmakers and/or staff throughout the day. Our goal is to visit all 170 legislative offices, so you will be asked to do a few drop-in visits as well.
Please plan to check back to this website frequently because we will be updating this with more information.
