KHBC is holding another lobbying day in Frankfort!
We will be meeting face to face with Senators to discuss SB85. This is the perfect time to meet with your legislator and have support with you, including steering committee members and/or members of our lobbying team.
Let KHBC be your Frankfort-Doula when you meet with your Senator!
We want as many supporters as possible from all across the state to join us. Invite your friends!
We will have resources to prepare you!
Every citizen is invited to attend– moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents, those without children, everyone who supports a family’s choice to having a qualified birth attendant of their choice.
1. CALL YOUR SENATOR AND ASK FOR A MEETING ON THIS DAY.
Find your SENATOR here: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/
Call your SENATOR’S annex phone number and ask to schedule a meeting. Say that you are a *constituent* of your senator, and that you will be in Frankfort on February 23 with the Kentucky Home Birth Coalition and you will be available from 8:30am until 11:45am (You could also meet after this time, we just won’t have our meeting room after that time).
