State Lobby Days

One way to get involved in advocacy is to attend a lobby day at your state Capitol.  Meeting your state legislators in person is an effective way to convey a message about key issues in women’s health. Lobby days show strength in numbers, give visibility to ACOG priorities, and generate enthusiasm and camaraderie among Fellows.  See below for scheduled 2018 District and Section lobby days and registration information.
