Calling on Our Lawmakers
Lobbying our elected officials is a powerful tool for advocacy and change. In our continuing fight for social justice, the policies and laws enacted at the state level have profound impacts on our communities. State governments control a wide range of issues directly affecting our daily lives, from education and healthcare to voting rights and criminal justice.
During the last week in February, NAACP advocates will visit state legislatures across the country to uplift issues important to the Black community. Join your local NAACP unit to meet with state legislators or rally at your state capital to advocate for policies that matter to you and the Black community.
We're advocating to improve education, health, environmental, economic, and justice outcomes for the Black community. Use these policy briefs to provide context and recommendations when meeting with elected officials.
Meet us at the capital
If you are a branch leader in one of the following states, sign up to let your State Conference know you'll attend a day of advocacy in your state capital. They will follow up with the final details.
