"How to Maximize Your Day at the Capitol"

  • Contact your Senator and/or Representative ahead of time to let them know you will be at the Capitol to attend the FHE Rally and that you would like to stop by his/her office for a short visit.   

(If you would like to bring cookies to your senator and representive, the legislators and staff appreciate the thoughtfulness!)
