Don't miss the very important, very fun, and very educational Advocating for Change Day 2015!  It's a day of advocacy and networking, plus a little training on how to be an effective advocate. It's free to attend, and lunch is provided.  But you have to register!

ID Action also offers local action groups opportunities to do their own Capitol Days, separate from Advocating for Change Day.  ID Action staff will help you plan your day and prepare your message (although they won't tell you what to say).  If you have an issue you want to advocate for, and you have a group willing to come to the Capitol, ID Action has resources to help you do it.  To find out more, click here.
