What is ABCs of Advocacy?

We are so glad you asked! Our goal is to take the mystery out of advocacy. Over the course of the day, we will cover the following topics and more:

  • Why your voice matters (it really does);
  • Who represents YOU and how to connect with their offices;
  • How a Bill Becomes Law & Tracking Bill Progress;
  • Practical Ways to Support Legislation (we all have busy lives);
  • Hot Policy topics (there's always drama at the legislature!)

Registration available onsite!


Navigating downtown Austin and getting to the Capitol extension auditorium can be tricky, so here are some instructions and helpful tips.

Please allow extra time for traffic and walking to the Capitol.

It is about a 20 minute walk from the Capitol Visitors parking garage to the Capitol Auditorium.

Parking (map)- parking downtown is not free. Street parking is available but only for a couple of hours at a time. We recommend parking in the Capitol Visitors parking garage located on the east side of the Capitol at 1201 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78701. The garage entrance is located off 12th street between Trinity and San Jacinto.

Entering the Capitol (building map): When entering the building, please use the elevators on the north side of the rotunda. Go down to E.1 (Extension floor 1). When exiting the elevators, follow the hallway into the extension. The auditorium is on your right.

Drinks and snacks: Please be advised that NO food or drinks are allowed in the Capitol Auditorium.

Information on Capitol visitors parking:

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow morning! Safe travels.
