On March 28 and 29, the ABA returns to Capitol Hill in person for the first time since 2019 for its annual association-wide advocacy event — ABA Day. We will once again work with national, state and local bar leaders and association members to raise our voices in solidarity on issues the legal profession cares about.
Historically, ABA Day has been an in-person event, but health concerns caused by the COVID 19 pandemic led to congressional buildings being closed to the public for an extended period starting in March 2020.
No access to the Hill did not stop our loyal advocates though. The ABA hosted multiple digital advocacy events during the last few years, engaging thousands who helped advance ABA legislative priority issues including judicial security, funding for the Legal Services Corporation (LSC), and student debt relief.
With the 118th Congress now constituted, and the Hill again open to the public, this year we look forward to introducing the ABA and state and local bar colleagues to the nearly 90 newly elected members and congressional leaders from about three dozen states.
