Transportation to and from Capitol Hill will not be provided. You are responsible for your travel to the Hill. We request that all participants of Action Day meet at NASTAD prior to traveling to Capitol Hill to pick up printed materials and go over any questions regarding the rest of Action Day.
Please note that meetings with elected officials will end at different times. If you decide to stick around after your Action Day activities consider taking a tour of the Capitol. We recommend booking a tour ahead of time online through the Library of Congress website.
