The 2015 legislative session begins January 15 and ends 105 days later on April 27th. Each of the following organizations sponsors a lobby day that includes training on their legislative agenda issues, inspirational speakers including people directly affected by the issues, and appointments with your legislator.
These organizations are consistent with our KCDCC platform and offer in-depth training and policy papers in their areas of excellence. We urge your support and participation. Even if you can’t go to Olympia, sign up for one or two mailing lists in your areas of interest.
