While the CFT legislative staff works hard to promote legislation on behalf of members, your presence in the halls of the Legislature gives a human face to the CFT and our fight for high-quality education. The CFT hosts provides numerous opportunities for you to meet with state legislators one-on-one and share your experiences from the workplace.
Division Council Lobby Days
The CFT organizes occasional lobby days for each division — PreK-12, Classified, Community College, University and Retired.
Issue-Based Lobby Days
When particular bills in the Legislature address key educational issues, the CFT may organize issue-based lobby days.
