Registration for Spring Lobby Weekend 2019 has now closed

The 2019 Spring Lobby Weekend will focus on immigration. Come lobby for laws that protect the rights and safety of immigrants, migrants, refugees, and their families.

This is an especially pivotal time in DC—join us this March and make your voice heard.

Legislative Ask The real crisis at the border is deportation, detention, and walls.  

There is a crisis at the U.S. border: a moral crisis of immigrant children separated from their parents as they seek safety. There is a crisis of walls through communities and of refugee families detained in camps on military bases. There is a humanitarian crisis, created by military troops deployed in border communities and an illegal ban on certain asylum seekers.

Check out our schedule, Frequently Asked Questions, and financial aid pages to learn more about Spring Lobby Weekend and opportunities for funding!
