300 Capitol Ave Hartford CT, 06106

On May 1st, 2019 from 11am-3pm concerned CT residents will gather at the Legislative Office Building to rally together and speak with elected officials over bills we support and oppose. The main focus of the day will be opposing HB 7070: An act concerning deceptive practices at limited services pregnancy centers. –

Here are 3 easy steps to attend this important event.

Step 1: Contact your elected officials (State Senators and State Representatives) to see if they can meet with you on Wednesday, May 1st. Find your elected officials here-

Put in your address. Click on the names of the State Senators and State Representatives. A webpage will open with a phone number and an email. Call the number to make an appointment with their assistant or write an email asking for an appt. Remember to share that you’re in their district and want to meet with them. You can tell them it’s about a matter that concerns you and mention HB 7070 along with other bills if you desire to.

Schedule meetings for 12:15 pm and after for May 1st. If they can’t meet with you on May 1st, then schedule an in-person meeting for another day. You can also schedule before the rally if that works best for them. If you get a meeting for another day it’s still valuable to attend the rally to show the elected officials there’s opposition to this bill. The rally will also provide handouts and information you can give to your State Senators and Reps.

 Step 2: Attend the Lobby Day meeting: This meeting will be held in a room on the first floor of the Legislative Office building. It will start at 11am and the room will be announced soon. If you arrive early you can wait in the lobby or the café next to the lobby. You will learn more about HB 7070 and be given handouts to give to legislators as well as ones that give you facts about the bill.

 Step 3: Share about the Lobby Day and invite friends! Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice CT and pro-abortion rights groups are often in the Legislative Office Building giving elected officials misinformation about pregnancy centers. We need people to show up and speak the truth about the work of pregnancy centers. Invite friends to this event by sharing the Facebook link – . Share videos, pictures, and updates on the day we lobby to encourage others to take a stand.
