LIFE Announces 3rd Annual Youth Lobby Day

LIFE Institute and LIFE: California's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and HIV/AIDS Lobby are pleased to announce the third annual Youth Lobby Day. The Youth Lobby Day, founded in 1995, is the statewide effort to educate and empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and straight youth. The event is set for January 21, 1998 and will consist of educational activities throughout the day at the State Capitol and the historic Crest Theatre.

The Youth Lobby Day is co-sponsored by Frontiers NewsMagazine, incite! Web Site, and OutWord NewsMagazine. The goals of the event are to educate young people about the issues that affect their lives, the legislative process, and avenues for effecting change; to educate the California State Legislature about youth and their needs; and last, for participants to have a great time, make new friends, and be empowered.

On January 3, 1996 over 350 young people from all over the state of California came to Sacramento to meet and learn about their elected officials and the legislative process. In 1997 over 550 youth participated - almost doubling the numbers. On January 21, 1998, honoring Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday, this inspiring event will take place again. The 1998 Youth Lobby Day will include workshops, caucuses and other special events, as well as visits with Elected Officials.

If you would like more information about participating or volunteering for the 1998 Youth Lobby Day, please write back to life.info@lifelobby.org or call (916) 444-0424.
