Blue Ribbon Lobby Day is taking place on  Monday, April 10, 2017.

It is the only legislative event hosted for Democratic and progressive women in Texas, when we all come together in Austin to lobby for issues important to progressive women. TDWHarris is sponsoring a bus from Houston to Austin, and back, to make it easier for women in the Harris County Metro Area to get to and from the Capitol. Below is all the information you'll need if you're interested in participating in the lobby training and activities, and to make sure there is time scheduled for you to speak to your state senator and representative about what matters to you as a progressive woman in Texas. A strong showing of Texans, proudly wearing blue, will focus attention on key women's issues.

You must register with Texas Democratic Women/the Texas Democratic Party, and pay the registration fee.
