Lobbying is sharing your point of view, story, and/or lived experience with your legislator to influence them to support or oppose certain bills. Everyone is the expert of their own lived experience, and there is power in sharing your story in community and with decision-makers who have an influence on our lives.
We want to show lawmakers that, in every district, there are queer and trans Virginians and their allies who will show up when equity is on the line. Even when lawmakers are already supportive of queer and trans issues, sharing our stories of joy and resilience equips them to show up for us in informed ways that center our humanity.
We will be hosting a Lobby Day Prep Session a few days before each Lobby Day. Keep a look out for an email with more information on this as your Lobby Day gets closer! Additionally, there are no requirements or expectations for how you show up on Lobby Days. If you’d like to be part of the experience, but not necessarily speak to lawmakers, that is completely welcome.
Equality Virginia is hosting at least 4 Lobby Days this year! The dates are:
