Capitol Visits

AEA organizes lobbying days at the Arizona Capitol every year to help educators tell their stories to their elected officials.
AEA Capitol Visits

Visiting the Capitol is your opportunity to observe the process, meet with your legislators, and share your stories of working in public schools and how their decisions will affect our students, colleagues, schools, and educators. Elected officials determine our salaries, set student testing requirements, and appropriate funds.

This year's Capitol visits are going to look very different due to the pandemic. Join the AEA Officers, Lobbyist, and invited Legislators for a virtual lobby day.

  • Overview and update on key bills
  • Learn best ways to get your point across and voice your position to inform legislators as decisions are being considered
  • Breakouts for special topics, newer and veteran member lobbyists
  • Share your stories to give legislators perspective of the impact within our schools.
