Dear Free Speech Coalition Member,
Please join us and representatives from the adult industry as we visit members of the California Legislature for the 10th year of Celebrating Free Speech Lobbying Days (CSFLD).
This Free Speech Coalition-organized event has become the model for cooperation and education between government and industry. Lobby Day is your opportunity to share information to dispel myths, reinforce the positive aspects of the industry, and establish interpersonal connections with key public policy makers.
Letís face it, the people in Sacramento making decisions about how you run your business and live your life havenít a clue about how this industry works or who works within it. We need your help. Join us--speak up--make a difference! See you there.
Executive Director, Free Speech Coalition
