In just a few short weeks, law librarians will travel to Washington, D.C., where they will meet with their members of Congress to discuss AALL’s top priority issues as part of our 2015 Local Advocate Lobby Day. Their conversations will cover a range of important topics facing law librarianship, including proposed Freedom of Information Act reforms, digital privacy, funding for the Government Publishing Office, Library of Congress, and related agencies.
If you’re unable to join your fellow AALL members in our nation’s capital, never fear! You can still help to magnify the impact of these meetings and expand AALL’s influence in Congress from the comfort of your desk.
Our Virtual Lobby Day will take place simultaneously on March 18 and you can take action at any time during the day. By registering for the Virtual Lobby Day in advance, you’ll receive personalized directions and tips about contacting your member of Congress on March 18 using our Legislative Action Center. We’ll provide everything you need to take action on our targeted issues, including: background information on legislation, talking points, sample messages, and specific asks to make of your members of Congress based on their interests and committee assignments.
Participating in our Virtual Lobby Day is quick and easy. Pledge to take part today and help give law librarians a strong showing on Capitol Hill on March 18!
