Registration open for Jewish advocacy day in Sacramento

Sign up for Weekday J and get the latest on what's happening in the Jewish Bay Area.

Registration is now open for the Jewish Public Affairs Committee of California’s 2018 Advocacy Day in Sacramento.

JPAC annually leads a citizens’ lobby to the state capitol in Sacramento to meet with lawmakers and discuss issues of importance to the Jewish community. The last Advocacy Day in May attracted 120 participants.

JPAC lobbies on a variety of issues, including the state budget, social justice and economic opportunity, how best to combat anti-Semitism and criminal justice.

The 2018 event is scheduled to take place May 14-15 in Sacramento.

Participants who register by Jan. 31 can lock in at reduced rates: $95 for both days or $80 for May 15 only. Thereafter, the rates will be $140 and $120, respectively. Also, there are significant discounts available for students.

The two-day prices include a Monday night reception with legislators on May 14 and breakfast and lunch the next day. An optional dinner with the California Legislative Jewish Caucus, a body of 15 state senators and assembly members, is an additional $70, and hotel rooms for $189 per night are available. The one-day price includes breakfast and lunch on May 15, in addition to activities such as meetings and lobbying.
