Join us for NAPABA’s 2018 Lobby Day in Washington, DC, from May 7-8, 2018. This event is an opportunity for NAPABA members from across the country to meet and discuss with members of Congress and congressional staffers about important issues for the Asian Pacific American and legal community. 

Participants will meet with legislators and voice their perspectives on a range of topics. As a participant, NAPABA provides all training and materials you need to meet with legislators on Capitol Hill.

In 2018, a few key issues Lobby Day will showcase are:

  • Protecting the Legal Services Corporation
  • Continuing the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program
  • Supporting the Adoptee Citizenship Act of 2018
  • Honoring Chinese American Veterans of World War II
