Come join us in Annapolis on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 as we tell our legislators that we want them to take action on human trafficking in the state of Maryland.
This year, we are supporting one or more bills. See “Bill Summaries” for a one-page summary of the bills we’re supporting during the 2014 legislative session. Each bill has a separate “Issue Brief,” linked below, with more background and details. These are helpful to read in preparation for lobby day. We will have a short session on lobby day to review the bills and discuss tips for effective advocacy.
We encourage you to make appointments with your legislator any time after 6:30pm! Stop by your legislators office to tell them you want to see human trafficking in Maryland stopped and which bills you want them to support. It is not mandatory to make appointments ahead of time, however, you have a better chance of meeting with your legislator in person if you schedule an appointment ahead of time. Otherwise you may be able to meet with a staff member or leave a hand-written note.
Do you know who your legislator is? Find out by visiting MDelect and enter your full home address into the Address search bar at the top of the page.
Scheduling an Appointment with your Legislator:
- Go to MDelect and type in your full home address
- Click on your senator and delegates in the panel on the left side of the screen to find their contact information.
- Contact your senator and delegates via phone and/or email asking for a 10-15 min. appointment to discuss legislation on an important issue to you—human trafficking in Maryland.
- Try not to schedule appointments too closely together as you might take up to 5-10 minutes to walk from one meeting to the next.
- Our goal is to have all one-on-one legislative meetings occur after 6:30pm. We would not recommend scheduling a meeting during our information session (5:00pm-5:45pm).
