Hundreds gather for first Lobby Day of 2020

New York News

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Tuesday was the first Lobby Day of 2020.

On every Tuesday of the legislative session, hundreds of people descend on downtown Albany to speak with lawmakers about causes that matter to them.

Some advocate for funding. Others just want to speak their mind and bring attention to their group or organization.

Lobby Days are held on Tuesday because that’s when lawmakers are most readily available to the public during session.
