FAQ

When can I register?

Registration is open now! Click the link above or right here to register on Tithely.

I've never been to the Capitol or lobbied a legislator. Should I come?

Yes! We strongly encourage the participation of people who are new to the lobbying process, who have never met a legislator, or who have never even stepped inside the State Capitol.

Is there be an option for virtual participation?

Yes! You are welcome to participate in the morning program from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. via Zoom. Online participants will not be charged a registration fee, but are invited to share a free-will donation if desired.

Will food be served?

In-person participants will be served breakfast and lunch. Please indicate any food allergy needs on your registration.

What about parking?

We know that parking is often a challenge in downtown Denver. We aim to keep our registration fee low to allow people to budget for parking during the morning. There are surface lots near St. Paul Lutheran Church as well as two-hour metered parking on the street. The use of public transportation and carpooling are both highly encouraged!

What happens if local health regulations change?

We understand that these times call for a high degree of flexibility. If local regulations change to such a degree that in-person gathering is not feasible, we will notify registrants as quickly as possible and make alternative arrangements. We will follow the current mask guidance for the City of Denver and the Capitol Building at the time of the event.

What bills will we advocate on?

Our goal is to make the lobbying portion of the event as timely as possible. In the weeks leading up to the event, we'll determine what bills on our agenda are at a critical stage in the legislature so that your voice can make a timely impact!
