2019 Lobby Days

Caucus Lobby Days are coming — and we want you!

Join the Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus for our 2019 Lobby Days in Tallahassee. There is much on the agenda, and as always equality is at stake. With new leadership in Tallahassee it’s imperative that we make our voices heard.

We have two intensive days of meetings with elected officials and staff, including a training session on our issues and how to talk about them. We welcome everyone to participate!

Our draft schedule is below to help you plan. Please note there will be a $10 charge to cover printing and supplies, and lunch is sponsored for both days we’re in the Capitol.

One other note — Tallahassee is busy during session, so be sure to make your hotel reservations as soon as you can!

Parking

There is metered street parking all around the Capitol complex. There are also several parking garages, including Kleman Plaza parking garage, one block from the Capitol.

Attire

Business-appropriate attire should be worn while in the Capitol. This includes suits, slacks, button-up shirts, knee-length skirts, dresses and close-toed shoes. No jeans, sleeveless shirts, or open-toed shoes. Please wear comfortable (but business appropriate) shoes as there is a lot of walking involved in Lobby Days.

Hotels

In lieu of a host hotel, we encourage attendees to book their favorite lodging that fits their budget, such as through Orbitz, Travelocity, Priceline, or Airbnb.
