Lobby Day 2020

Join fellow ACLU of Missouri supporters on Wednesday, February 12th to fight for our civil rights at the 5th annual Voices of Liberty Lobby Day!

Lobby Day is an opportunity to remind your elected officials of their responsibility to protect the rights of all Missourians. We need you with us! We'll provide snacks and transportation from Kansas City and St. Louis to the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City.

We hold trainings in the weeks prior to show you what to expect. This training will help you feel more confident and prepared as you advocate for people's rights. Sign up to attend one in your area today - and bring a friend!
