On Friday February 15th, the Senate passed SB 5339, the 2019 bill to end the death penalty. This year’s lobby day will focus on our House Representatives. You might remember that last year the bill to end the death penalty made it through the Senate and a House committee, but never made it to the House floor for a vote. Let’s make 2019 different.
LOBBY DAY 2019 will be held on Friday March 22nd. This day will include a morning orientation session, followed by meetings (set up for you) with your legislators. There is a carpool link on the registration form as well, so if you have room in your car or need a ride check it out!
If you are able to attend in person, please register by March 18th.
Registrations require your full address so that we can schedule a meeting for you with your representatives. After you register, please also send an email to your legislators – this includes a thank you email to your Senator if they voted for the bill. We’ll have a list of those who signed to take to those legislators on lobby day to remind them how much support they have for repeal. Please send an email even if you can’t attend lobby day in person!
Whether or not you are able to attend Lobby Day in person, please send an email to your legislators They will hear from you NOW, and we will print off a list of those who signed to deliver on lobby day to remind them of how much constituent support they have on this bill.
