The “Interim” or time between the end of one legislative session and the beginning of the next, is a key time to develop relationships with partners and legislators. Much of this work is behind the scenes, but you can get involved! We need ambassadors and other office or field employee volunteers to step up to organize district office visits, where you and I will visit key legislators in the communities they represent. These visits are key to helping educate our legislators about the people we care for and the people we employ in their districts and build a foundation for future advocacy. Call or email me if you’d like to get involved.
