Our Sioux Falls advocates had a briefing from Sioux Falls area legislators in the Visitor’s Center, while our Northeast and West River advocates hosted lunch in the Capitol Rotunda. Overall, we connected with over 70 legislators and took a group picture with Governor Noem, Lt. Governor Rhoden and Attorney General Ravnsborg. Thanks to everyone that came to Pierre and helped make our Lobby Day a success!
