To plan the best possible experience for all participants, please sign up so that we can estimate numbers for food and meetings. Especially given that it is an election year, we are very optimistic that a large presence will have a true influence. Please try to attend whatever portion of the day is feasible for you. Your advocacy has never been more needed!
