"It surprised me how accessible the lobbying forum is to everyday citizens. I firmly believe as someone who lives in this country that if I want to see something changed, I need to take part in making that change possible.”

- Julia Doria, Denver
"After attending Lobby Day, I was able to apply what I learned by having an opportunity to attend a town hall meeting with my local representative and we talked about family leave.”

- Kim Jackson, Colorado Springs
