Asian Americans Advancing Justice Atlanta: Legislative Lobby Day

Asian Americans Advancing Justice Atlanta: Legislative Lobby Day
Please join us for our Fifth Annual Asian American Legislative Breakfast and Lobby Day. Our Legislative Breakfast and Lobby Day is designed to be a relationship-building opportunity among Asian American leaders, Georgia elected officials and other policy makers. Our event draws the largest number of Asian American business and community leaders to the Georgia Capitol each year, typically bringing together 150 guests. This year's breakfast will start with coffee and refreshments as well as a formal program at the beautiful Georgia Freight Depot from 7:30AM - 10AM, followed by a tour of the Capitol and a chance to lobby elected officials. Guests will take a photograph with Governor Nathan Deal, followed by a bagged lunch and networking opportunity with legislators inside the Capitol. We welcome guests to join us for the whole program, but participants may join us for the breakfast program or for the later program.

The Georgia Railroad Freight Depot was completed in April of 1869 and is one of the oldest buildings in downtown Atlanta. The building served as the main freight depot for the Georgia Railroad and was restored by the Georgia Building Authority in 1981 for public use. Most of the original brickwork and freight bays remain in place to give the facility a unique setting for special occasions. The Freight Room can accommodate 800 guests for a seated event and 1300 for a stand-up reception. The Freight Room is an ideal location for large award ceremonies, wedding receptions, lunch and dinner events, trade shows, or fundraisers with sufficient room for a DJ, band or other entertainment. You are only limited by your own imagination.
