Lutheran Lobby Day (CA) 2024

May 15 @ 5:30 am - 1:00 pm EDT

The Lutheran Office of Public Policy in California (LOPPCA) is hosting Lutheran Lobby Day 2024.

Lobbying is a form of advocacy work that involves directly meeting with political decision-makers, whether elected or appointed. Many of us have heard of lobbyists in Washington, DC, and while we tend to think of lobbying as something only corporations do, anyone can lobby. Lobbying is simply talking with your legislators about your priorities and asking them to listen, and bringing your network to the table to back them up when decisions get hard, and stakeholders pull legislators in multiple directions. LOPP in inviting Lutherans to be a part of this process in California.

See more information on their website here.

Register yourself and a friend here.

Sign up by Tuesday, May 7th for Lutheran Lobby Day, which is taking place in Sacramento on Wednesday, May 15th from 8:30 am – 4 pm PST. We will be centered at St. John’s Lutheran Church Sacramento for the morning program and following legislative meetings.

Exciting news! LOPPCA has funding to support the hotel and transportation costs of the first 15 people under the age of 25 that register for Lobby Day! Please indicate in your registration form whether you fit that age criteria, and we will be in contact with you.
