 12:00 PM - Engagement at the Statehouse Lobby: After our session, head to the Statehouse lobby where you'll have the opportunity to connect with members from both the House and Senate. To reach out to your senator, email

SenateChamber@scsenate.gov. For your house member, email

HousePage@schouse.gov. Remember to include your legislator's name in the subject line. Your voice matters as constituents, so thank them for their support of Director Kerr's HHS budget and share about yourself and your contributions in their district.

For any queries or assistance, contact mackie@thesoutherngroup.com or scotalegislation@gmail.com.  Have a fantastic day advocating for what matters to you!
