At the Statehouse - Take Action
Check out our Third House / Meet Your Legislator event calendar
IaUW is tracking Third House Sessions and "meet your legislator" events across the state.  These meetings are opportunities for constituents to talk to their legislators and learn about bills they are working on at the statehouse.  It is important that legislators hear input from their constituents and these events are a great way for you to connect and share your thoughts.  View our Third House Calendar that will be updated regularly throughout the legislative session.  Check back often for new events as they are posted.  Upcoming events include:
  • Bloomington - January 13 at 11:30am
  • Greater Greenwood - January 13 at 11:30am
  • Hamilton County - January 13 at 7:30am
  • Madison County - January 9 at 6:30pm
  • Southwest IN - January 13 at 11:30am
If you attend, drop us a note to share a little about your experience.
