Lobby Meetings/Legislative Meetings with Elected Representatives: If you are interested in join us for upcoming lobby meetings, please click here! No lobbying experience is required.
One-On-Ones: We like to meet each one of our members and spend time doing a "one-on-one" where we sit down (either via zoom, or in-person - at our office or perhaps over coffee or lunch!) to get to know you, and learn about you and what it is that brings you to VOCAL-NY! Your lived experience is what qualifies you to engage in advocacy work and activism in a meaningful way so we would love to know more about the ways in which you've been impacted so that we can better support your growth in utilizing your experiential authority to pass life-changing and life-saving legislation statewide! Click here to sign-up for a one-on-one with one of our Albany-based organizers!
