Legislative Visit Facilitator

If your organization has a member who has previously participated in visits with elected leaders, please consider asking them to volunteer as a visit facilitator. The facilitator is responsible for:

  • Preparing for Visit: Participants will meet in front of the leg office 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time. The Facilitator uses this time to coordinate with participants on who will speak on what issue and in what order.
  • Legislative Visit Leadership: Facilitator helps direct/keep the visits focused if the conversation starts to veer. He or she assigns or plays the timekeeper role as many visits are likely to have multiple participants.
  • Report-Back Forms: Facilitator completes a Report Back form (part of Visit packet provided by CIPC).


During the Immigrant Day rally, on-stage interpretation will be provided for any language requested by more than 40 Immigrant Day attendees. For interpretation requests under that number, CIPC will coordinate with point persons to provide interpretation spaces during the rally.

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.
