Equality California – LGBT Advocacy Day
May 16 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
From Equality California:
On May 16, 2017, Equality California will host its annual LGBT Advocacy Day in Sacramento, California.
It is crucial that Californians make their voices heard in Sacramento so that our state can continue to lead the way on LGBT civil rights and social justice. Join us and our partners in raising awareness about critical priorities for the LGBT community and all communities impacted by new challenges at the federal level.
Participants will receive training on legislative priorities and how to advocate for those priorities in face-to-face meetings with California legislators and their staff. We empower community members to have a direct impact on their state’s evolution by giving them opportunities to share personal stories and advocate for legislation that meets the needs of the LGBT community and people living with HIV. The event opens with a press conference and rally at the State Capitol.
This year, Equality California is addressing critical LGBT issues by sponsoring bills regarding HIV/AIDS, healthcare, education, transgender rights, and other priority areas.
Registration is $25, which includes lunch, training, and legislative o ce visits. High school and college students can register for free, at action.eqca.org/students. Participants will be expected to nd transportation to and from Sacramento on Tuesday, May 16th. Participants can apply for a limited number of roundtrip travel grants at action.eqca.org/travelgrant.
Thank you so much for engaging with our community!
