About I&E Days

Information & Education Days (I&E Days) is an annual event organized by the American Heart Association’s Tobacco Endgame Center for Organizing and Engagement to educate the California Legislature about the impact tobacco has on our communities, and the local efforts being carried out to address them.

I&E Days Attendees

Participation in I&E Days 2023 is open to all CTCP-funded projects, organizations, and their coalition members. Community organizations and individuals working with local coalitions, and funded projects are also welcome.


The event starts on Monday, May 8 with the Opening Session commencing at 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 9 will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a group gathering at the Holiday Inn followed by legislative meetings. Lunch will take place under the tent on the Capitol Grounds at noon, with a continuation of legislative meetings the remainder of the afternoon. I&E Days will conclude with a wrap-up session at the tent where participants can re-gather, share stories and learnings.

Legislative Meetings

The focal point I&E Days is meeting with your legislators – the state Assembly Member and Senator that represents you in Sacramento. The Tobacco Endgame Center will schedule your legislative meetings based on the voting address that you provide in registration. You will be joined by others who also live in the same Assembly and Senate districts. Attending the legislative meetings is mandatory for all I&E Days participants.

Because these meetings are done in a group, there needs to be one person to serve as the Meeting Lead for each of the legislative meetings. The role of the Meeting Lead is to:

  1. Serve as a point of contact to the Tobacco Endgame Center and for other people scheduled for that meeting.
  2. Organize the meeting attendees to prepare for the legislative visit.
  3. Ensure that feedback is provided to the Tobacco Endgame Center team.



I&E Days will be headquartered at the Holiday Inn Downtown Sacramento and a block of rooms are available for I&E Day participants. The Opening Session on Monday, May 8 will take place at the Holiday Inn as will the Tuesday, May 9 Morning Session.
