This year Bee Day will operate differently than in past years in order to accommodate a more diverse audience of advocates and to showcase the range of advocacy activities available to connect constituents with their elected officials. In many ways, this will resemble an “advocacy fair” with many tables and opportunities to get involved depending on your comfort and time restraints.
Our itinerary is as follows:
9:00 am: Bee Day registration and advocacy begins at Marriott Columbia's Capital ballroom III - IV. (1200 Hampton Street, Columbia, SC). Continental breakfast and coffee will be provided.
Participants will have an opportunity to practice a robust advocacy regimen at 5 stations including:
Intermingled with the advocacy tables will be partner tables where advocates can learn about impactful, diverse organizations that are advancing the health, economic well-being and rights of South Carolina women, girls and their families.
These tables will run throughout Bee Day from 9am-3pm.
11:00 am: Press conference on the first floor lobby of the State House (shuttles will be provided from the Marriott Columbia to the State House beginning at 10:30am)
11:30 am: Introductions in the House chambers
12:00 pm: Pictures on the State House steps
12:30 pm: lunch with legislators at Marriott Columbia
1:30 pm-3:00 pm: Bee Day advocacy continues at the Marriott Columbia with shuttles to and from the State House to meet your legislator.
