What a day we had with over 400 advocates storming the Capitol to rally for their civil rights and talk to state legislators.

This is always one the highlights of the year for me and our ranks grow every year. It is a delight to hear people’s stories and to just have some fun with friends.

Here are some photos courtesy of Willow Lane Photography that will give you a feel for this magical day.
