Save the date! 

Lobby Day happens every two years (2015, 2017, 2019, 2021, you get the idea). The 2021 Lobby Day will happen on Tuesday, April 20, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Lobby Day will be virtual instead of in person. 

What is Lobby Day?

Lobby Day is an exciting event that brings together deaf, deafblind, and hard of hearing constituents, friends, family members, and allies, and their legislators to discuss issues that are near and dear to their constituents' hearts.

This is your chance to educate your legislators about the importance of communication access and equal opportunity. Your meetings with your legislators are the most important thing you do at Lobby Day and it really does make a difference! Plan to be a part of this important day.
