You are Invited to Lobby Day 2015, Tuesday March 24, 2015



Learn how to lobby your legislators on civil liberties issues. We’ll share tips and ideas for effectively communicating with legislators and talking about legislative priorities for 2015, including:
•             Police militarization. We need transparency and oversight when police acquire military equipment and use it in SWAT deployments.
•             Due process. Let’s get the “transfer statute” repealed so the state can’t put children in prison without criminal charges or trial, as it did to Jane Doe.
•             Privacy rights. Police should have to get a warrant before they fly a surveillance drone into your back yard or get records of your phone calls and movements.
•             Aid in dying. Mentally competent, terminally ill patients deserve the right to make their own choices about how to die.
•             Youth and student rights. We need clear agreements with police officers assigned to schools to reduce criminalization of typical student behavior and cut racial disparities in arrests.

Coffee and registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Old Judiciary Room in the Capitol building at 210 Capitol Avenue in Hartford.
