UU Day at theLegislature
President's Day, Monday,
February 17th 2020.
For many years, this is a day where UUs from around the state have come to the Capitol to meet in person with their state representatives and state senators. If you are planning to attend, sign up here
Based on the feedback you sent, this year's UU DATL will continue to focus on appointments with your legislators. We will not be encouraging folks to stay for an entire day of programming. We are asking folks who are "captains" in your districts to schedule their appointments between 11-1. We will gather for an update on the UU values in the legislature around 10.
