Welcome to Cal-APABA's 2018 Lobby Day!

Cal-APABA's first annual Lobby Day will be held in Sacramento on Tuesday, March 13, 2018. The event runs from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, with a reception from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM. 

The convening is a great opportunity to network with Asian Pacific American lawyers throughout California and meet with legislators to address priority issues such as hate crimes, the 2020 Census, judicial appointments, and others. 

We are very pleased to announce that both Speaker Anthony Rendon and President pro Tempore-Designee Toni Atkins are confirmed to meet with our group. Click here to read their biographies.

What to expect:

We will open the day with a lobbying training that provides tips on how to effectively advocate for our issues.  Then we will meet with members of the API Legislative Caucus and other legislators.  For your convenience, we will schedule all appointments and match you with your legislative representative.

In the evening, we will host a reception where you will have the distinct opportunity to meet and talk to members of the legislature in a more informal environment.

Attendees are responsible for their own travel arrangements. Please plan to stay for the entire day. We will book appointments with Legislators from 1 PM - 4:30 PM.
