We have confirmation! We are having a Lobby Day in Albany on June 17th! Sponsored by Assemblyman Ed Ra, we have reserved "The Well" inside the NYS Legislature Building.
"Common Sense Education Day" will include a rally in the late morning (details are being worked out) and then we are encouraged to visit our legislators right there in their offices. All who are planning to attend are encouraged to contact their legislators in advance and make appointments to meet on that day.
Elected officials pay attention when large numbers of people congregate around an issue. Lobbying is a powerful way of making our message heard. Let's let them see our numbers and hear our voices!!!
