We can't wait. We all need a way to get away right now, let's take a deep breath cozy up with our popcorn and our families and enjoy a movie.

In order to participate, all you need is a Google Chrome browser, the extension and a Netflix subscription. Here's how it works:

1. Go to netflixparty.com on a Google Chrome browser and click "Get Netflix Party for free!" This will redirect you to Netflix Party's page on the chrome web store.

2. Click "Add to Chrome" and then click "Add extension" in the pop-up window. Netflix Party will then be added to the top right corner of your Google Chrome browser, next to the address bar. It will have the initials "NP."

3. Make sure your friends have downloaded "NP" onto their Google Chrome browsers as well.

4. Wait for us to send you the link, click on the link, you will see the movie, and the chat box open.

We are excited to announce our first full digital event! Have you ever wondered what is getting done in Montpelier? Well, we want to tell you! As many of you may know, right now is crossover. That means that whatever bills made it out of the House and Senate are the ones that will be considered by the other body and new bills will not be taken up after that midway point (unless the rules are suspended, which does happen. More on that Monday). We want to tell you some of what we know about these bills and what is next! We also want to hear from all of you with your questions and concerns about process, issues.

We will walk you through some of the bills that are important to us. What we would have liked to see happen and how you engage on these issues going forward. We will answer questions, tell you a little about what we are doing and hope to have a broad discussion.

Make sure to click on the sign up form and we can't wait to explore this new way of hosting a public event in the age of Coronavirus.

*Please remember social distancing, hand washing and dissenfecting. We can limit the spread if practice an abundance of caution!
