2019 Lobby Day at the Capitol

Aspiring Advocates Wanted: Learn to Lobby for Colorado Women and Their Families

*2019 Lobby Day has reached capacity. Scroll down to learn how to join the wailist.*

Join WFCO and community members from across Colorado at the State Capitol to learn to advocate effectively for policies that advance opportunities for Colorado women and their families.

March 5, 2019
7:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (morning only or full-day option)
First Baptist Church of Denver, Miller Hall
1373 Grant St., Denver, CO 80203

At Lobby Day, you will learn about the policies WFCO supports, how to advocate for women's advancement, meet legislators and policy experts, and observe the legislative process in action. Most importantly, you will gain confidence in the power of your influence to drive change.

2018 Lobby Day participants told us Lobby Day was an enriching and empowering experience, but they wanted the opportunity to put what they learned into action. We're excited to announce that our 2019 agenda includes not only a morning of learning, but an afternoon of specialized tracks for individuals and nonprofits to test your new advocacy skills.

"Lobby Day was educational and inspirational. We met with legislators, lobbyists, and WFCO leaders to learn first-hand about the issues facing women and children and their access to a high quality of life.”
