Register for Lobby Days 2021 Today

March 16 - 18

Housing California and RUN are excited to announce that our favorite day of the year has gone virtual: Lobby Days 2021 will stretch across three days, and you’re invited. Everyone who attends will need to first register through this link then get trained with us. RUN members must attend a series of three training sessions on February 10, 17, and 24. We will offer a Spanish language session on February 18. If you’re not a RUN member or you work for an affordable housing developer, service provider, or other partner organization, we’d love to have you join us for Lobby Days. We ask you to attend one training session for RUN allies on Thursday, March 4.


Anyone can get trained and join us. We need a lot of us to show legislators that they should support our priorities, so tell your friends to register here.
