**Updated to add our optional Legislature 101 / RTS training from 8:30AM - 9:45AM on Monday, March 15th - learn how and when to become engaged with legislation as it moves through the process**
2021 has been the most urgent year for our constituency EVER. The State Legislature has been absolutely blitzed with Christian Nationalist legislation. Lawmakers — Democrats and Republicans alike — are letting bills proceed that give religious organizations absolute power over the law. If ever there was a time that lawmakers needed to see the full force of our constituency, that time is NOW. So join us as we make our voices heard, meet new friends, and learn.
We are offering a legislative pre-training at 8:30 this day! So show up early if you'd like to get some extra confidence for your lawmaker appointment. Only one Zoom link for the entire day!
