With our 2019 Legislative Day of Action, we focus on no longer having our progress deferred. Through discussion we will spotlight the power in united advocacy & lobbying as a community, strengthening our future by making education a priority again and  how we can reform a system that has repeatedly delayed our progress in criminal justice.

Following our panels and keynote, there will be an opportunity to lobby with your state rep for issues important to you.
