Learning to Lobby

I’m in Sacramento today with Reform California, a group of Reform Jews who have organized to do social justice work via the legislative process at the state level. I am a bit ashamed to admit that I’ve never even been in the California State Capitol building before today. However, I’ve been making up for lost time: not only am I sitting this moment in a meeting deep inside the building, before I found this room I took the wrong elevator and got to know some terrific people: the maintenance staff who really keep the place running.

OK, now I’m going to start learning.
