The evening before Lobby Day the Secular Coalition for America will host a reception on Capitol Hill. At this exclusive event we will honor the Members of the Congressional Freethought Caucus, Hill staffers, and activists who have advocated on behalf of secular Americans. Mingle with your fellow lobbyists and meet a member of the Congressional Freethought Caucus. This event is your opportunity to become a DC insider and meet the individuals leading the fight to preserve our secular government. Separate ticket required, space is limited.

LOBBY DAY
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 — 8 AM TO 5 PM
GOLD ROOM, RAYBURN — CAPITOL HILL

The Secular Coalition for America’s Lobby Day brings nontheists from across the country to Washington, DC to lobby members of Congress and their staff about issues impacting the separation of church and state.

In-person lobbying from constituents is still the most effective method for reaching elected officials.

During Lobby Day you will:

— Learn how to effectively lobby your representatives
— Shape public policy and make a real impact
— Meet with lawmakers and their staff
— Network with like-minded secular leaders and advocates

Lobby Day begins with breakfast in the Gold Room of the Rayburn building followed by a panel of subject matter experts who will share insights on the issues we will be lobbying on. Then you will be trained on how best to present our issues by lobbyists from SCA and our member organizations, followed by the opportunity to practice and prepare for your congressional meetings in small groups with fellow attendees from your state or region.

Lunch will be served before you head off to your visits. When you are done, we encourage you to return to the Gold Room to share your experiences with SCA staff and other participants. Lobby Day registration includes continental breakfast and lunch. Space is limited... reserve early!
