Lobby Days

Overview

Lobby Days
Make your voice heard in the State Capitol

While the CFT legislative staff works hard to promote legislation on behalf of members, your presence in the halls of the Legislature gives a human face to the CFT and our fight for high-quality education. The CFT hosts provides numerous opportunities for you to meet with state legislators one-on-one and share your experiences from the workplace.

Division Council Lobby Days
The CFT organizes occasional lobby days for each division — PreK-12, Classified, Community College, University and Retired. 

Issue-Based Lobby Days
When particular bills in the Legislature address key educational issues, the CFT may organize issue-based lobby days.
