Virtual Earth Day Advocacy Day 2021
Join us to show your support for healthy people and a healthy planet in a virtual Earth Day Advocacy Day with NYS policy leaders on April 20th! Hundreds of New Yorkers from across the state representing every corner of the environmental movement will be joining together in advocating for a broad platform of legislation to make our state safer, cleaner, and greener. We need your support to make it happen.
Here is the Facebook Event!
During the morning session (9:45 am to noon) we’ll have a Q&A with elected leaders, present and discuss our priority bills, and explain how the lobbying process will work. In the afternoon session (12:30 to 3:00), we’ll gather in breakout rooms with team leaders, delegate roles among team members, and meet with legislators. Then, in the debrief (3:00 to 3:30) we’ll talk about how meetings with legislators went and discuss next steps.
