Forward Latino is pleased to announce our 2021 National Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. will be on September 23, 2021. National Advocacy Day provides Forward Latino members and affiliates a unique opportunity to walk the halls fo Congress and to meet with members and staff of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate and other policymakers.
TRAINING: To prepare for your day of advocacy, Forward Latino will host online training sessions leading up to Forward Latino's National Advocacy Day. Sessions will include "How to advocate with your member of Congress" as well as a thorough review of policy and proposed legislation on specific focus areas.
CONGRESSIONAL MEETINGS: Upon your registration, Forward Latino staff will assign you to an advocacy group and will begin to request meetings with your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators. Each advocacy group will have a team lead who is familiar with policy and proposed legislation, as well as with navigating between congressional office buildings. Please note that it is common to meet with Congressional staff as members may be scheduled or have to leave for floor votes or committee meetings.
