QUEST FOR DEMOCRACY Advocacy Day—
When WE Speak Directly to Legislators & Policy Makers!

Big Group Photo - Q4D 2016 0 croppedEvery Spring, LSPC and All of Us or None organize a large-scale statewide lobby day in Sacramento for formerly-incarcerated people, our family members, and allied community leaders and activists. We gather to show our support for pending legislation that affects people that are impacted by incarceration, and to assert ourselves as leaders, experts, and contributing members of our communities.

We are asking that all organizations, particularly with members who have been previously incarcerated, to join us on April 30, 2017. Monday morning will feature a training workshop on our sponsored bills and on effective legislative advocacy, then Action Teams will visit each legislator’s office to advocate in person, followed by a rally on the Capitol steps.

Please still RSPV here so we can provide you with lunch!
