CAGV, Moms Demand Action CT, Sandy Hook Promise, and Newtown Action Alliance are holding its first ADVOCACY DAY at the State Capitol on Tuesday, April 23rd at 10am. This is our opportunity to show our legislators we demand strong gun laws to keep our families and communities safe. So come to the Legislative Office Building (LOB) in your Against Gun Violence T-shirt to show your support. Don’t have one?? We will give you one there!
Plan for the day: Meet PROMPTLY at 10 AM in the Old Judiciary Room of the Legislative Office Building, 200 Capitol Ave, Hartford. We have speakers lined up and then we will be taking a GROUP PHOTO around 11 AM. Training will be provided by our State Legislative Leads and then you will have an opportunity to meet with legislators in small groups.
Parking: Free visitor parking is available on the first floor and basement of the Legislative Office Garage. Access the garage from the service road off Capitol Ave across from Hungerford St. The entrance to the basement lot is around the corner after the entrance to the first floor of the garage. This lot will fill up quickly. On-street metered parking is also available nearby on any of the side streets that run perpendicular to Capitol Ave. A commercial garage parking is at 21 Oak Street and other lots are available near the XL Center.
PLEASE NOTE: Allow extra time for parking and to get through security in the LOB!
