Virtual Jewish Community Lobby Day
Thursday, February 17, 2022

Join your friends, neighbors, congregants, and fellow engaged Washingtonians for virtual Jewish Community Lobby Day! We’ll do all the prep work for you; no prior experience necessary. We’ll walk you through learning about the issues and practicing our lobbying pitches, all to ensure you’re prepared to meet with your legislators to discuss the issues that are most important to you. We’ll address issues like combating hate and discrimination, protecting immigrants and refugees, preventing gun violence, supporting vulnerable families, and more! We would love to welcome students (high school, undergraduates, and beyond) to participate in Lobby Day—after all, young people are often the most effective and passionate advocates! Register here
