Catalyst to the Capital

Every year, we organize a three-day trip to Tallahassee, during which a delegation of community members, partners, and staff members meet with elected officials to discuss the issues of greatest concern to the communities we serve. Participants of Catalyst to the Capital (C2C) attend training, meet with legislators, and hold a press conference.
