National Library Legislative Day is a two-day advocacy event held in Washington, D.C. every year.

Day 1: Training:

Attendees spend one day learning effective advocacy techniques and learning about key library issues, like funding or net neutrality, and have the opportunity to attend a reception on Capitol Hill.

Day 2: Doing

Then ... Armed with talking points, attendees spend day two with their state delegations, meeting with elected officials and telling them about the importance of libraries in their communities.
