I would like to reserve a bus seat to Immigrant Day. Will there be transportation provided for every region?
Buses are provided for a limited number of regions. Exact pick-up locations are coming soon. We will have buses leaving from Orange County, Los Angeles, Fresno, and the Bay Area, and dropping off passengers right in front of the Capitol. Please indicate how many in your group require bus seats when you register.
Will there be any translation & interpretation services?
During the Immigrant Day Rally, interpretation will be provided for any language requested by more than 50 Immigrant Day attendees (Spanish interpretation is already confirmed). For interpretation requests under that number, CIPC will coordinate with point persons to provide interpretation spaces. Please note CIPC will NOT be able to provide interpretation during legislative visits. Please pair your group accordingly so that monolingual participants will have an interpreter during visits. We do our best to translate all Immigrant Day materials into Spanish, and other languages if possible.
Can I attend a legislative visit outside of my district?
If your organization wishes to target an office outside of its region, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate. As in previous years, Immigrant Day visits are prioritized for registrants that are constituents from that district. We ask organizations that wish to participate in visits outside of their region to keep their delegation to ONE representative (two, if an interpreter or chaperone is needed).
What if I want to go on a “drop-in” legislative visit separate from scheduled Immigrant Day visits?
Organizations are welcome to schedule their own visits or conduct drop-in visits outside of the scheduled Immigrant Day visit. However, we ask that the drop-in visits, if possible, be made after the Immigrant Day-scheduled visit and that the Immigrant Day policy platform or other materials are not shared/worn (e.g. buttons) to avoid confusion for the offices. In the past, offices have cancelled Immigrant Day-scheduled visits due to confusions with drop-in visits.
How much does it cost to attend Immigrant Day?
Participation in Immigrant Day is free and open to the public, but you must register to attend. Immigrant Day Legislative visits are also free for registered attendees. If desired, lunch and transportation can also be provided for a nominal cost. Please make sure to indicate how many lunches or bus seats are needed when you register.
What if I want to get an invoice for my group’s travel and lunch support?
Please contact email@example.com for a joint invoice.
Can I still attend Immigrant Day after registration closes?
Walk-in registrations to Immigrant Day are allowed, but we cannot guarantee lunch, transportation, or legislative visit materials. Therefore, we strongly urge you to register before the April 28th deadline.

Is there parking available for Immigrant Day?
Street parking near the Capitol has 1 and 2 hour time limits. We recommend arriving early and parking in one of the garages between 7th and 9th on L Street. There is special pricing if you arrive before 9 AM. If you park on the street, the meters surrounding the perimeter of the capitol accept coins and credit cards.
Is there WiFi available at the event?
There is no WiFi connection in the capitol. For nearby hotspots, click here.
Where can I find restrooms?
The State Capitol has restrooms on several floors. Note that if you are outside the building, make sure to allocate enough time to get through building security.
