The term “lobbying” originated in New Jersey – since our part-time legislators do not have staffed offices in the State House, much of the communication between advocates and representatives starts in “the lobby.”
Date: Thursday, June 6, 2013 Time: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm Location: Trenton Statehouse, Room TBA Breakfast and lunch will be served.
Join us in Trenton on June 6 and together we’ll:
Educate your representatives about investing in our economy by preserving the housing budget, including rental assistance, and making sure we have a housing policy that moves NJ forward
Tour the State House and get an insider’s view of the legislative process from where it all happens
Hone your advocacy skills and learn tricks of the trade for communicating with decision-makers
Participants will meet with their legislative representatives to educate them about housing and community development issues and build support for our policy priorities. Groups may also attend legislative hearings. NOTE: Please bring proper ID to enter the State House and please allow sufficient time to go through the new State House security process.
