2019 Day at the Capitol
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 starting at 9am
Kansas Statehouse/Visitors Center Auditorium, 4-N, Topeka
Join KRPA members and staff from around the state to advocate for parks and recreation!
Come join fellow KRPA members for a one-day event as we head to the statehouse to meet with our legislators. We will have access to our room at 9:00; the program will start shortly after 9:00. Hear from legislators, our new lobbyists and possibly a special guest.
We will have a short session on what to talk with your legislator about then head to the 2nd floor for lunch. After lunch there will be time to watch the house and senate debate on the floor then we will meet back in auditorium to debrief.
You will need to contact your legislator before you come on the 27th to let them know you will be at the capitol on the 27th and invite them to come grab a lunch. If you need help with this, please contact Erika.
You must RSVP to Erika at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 25th, 2019.

With the new dynamic of divided government for the first time in a decade, strong public support for parks and recreation is needed to make our unified voice heard. If you don’t tell the park and recreation story, who will?
