During this online training session, you will learn about the most effective ways to influence your members of Congress. You will also hear about AALL’s top policy priorities, including access to government information, copyright reform, and privacy. You can register for this session here.

On Virtual Lobby Day, you can help raise the profile of law libraries and AALL’s important policy issues by sending coordinated messages to Capitol Hill through the Government Relations Office’s Legislative Action Center and via social media. If you fill out the AALL Lobby Day survey by April 17, the Government Relations Office will send you personalized tips and information to help maximize your influence.
