Leading my team was Myra Irizarry, Director of Government Affairs, Professional Beauty Association. “I would encourage everyone to take part in PBA’s Lobby Day efforts on Capitol Hill," says Irizarry. "Not only is it exciting to see our government in action, but it helps make our message so much more impactful when members of Congress hear directly from voters in their home districts about the beauty industry and what is important to us."
In the videos, hear from these eloquent beauty professionals speaking persuasively on the importance of getting engaged:
