Advocacy Training/Lobby Day: May 10 in Albany
On Tuesday May 10th, the League had its annual lobby day in Albany. We had a great turnout with over 30 members attending despite the chaos happening around the Capitol. A special thanks to all our issues specialist who presented. Thank you to Aimee Allaud, Barbara Bartoletti, Marian Bott, Anne Burton, Gladys Gifford, Helga Schroeter, and Barbara Thomas; excellent presentations from everyone! Several of our members from Schenectady also attended the Raise the Age press conference and lobbied with the group. We were very happy so many of you chose to partner with the Raise the Age coalition of this important piece of legislation. The rest of our members lobbied their legislators on voting and ethics reform the Issues Specialists below.orms, access to contraception, education, and the upcoming Constitutional Convention delegate selection process. All of the documents distributed at lobby day are now on the League website (click here); a link is also available from the homepage of the state website.
