Update: We’ve now posted newer information about Lobby Day, including an updated schedule.
The Iowa Environmental Council cordially invites our members and supporters to our 2012 Environmental Lobby Day at the statehouse.
WHERE: First floor, Iowa State Capitol Building, Des Moines
WHEN: Wednesday, February 22, 2012, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (We’re planning a short press conference at 11:00 a.m. that morning.)
Environmental Lobby Day is your chance to join with a broad coalition of Iowans to talk with your elected representatives in person about why protecting Iowa’s air, water, and land really matters. We encourage all friends of Iowa’s environment to join us in person for this event.
Never lobbied before? No problem. Iowa Environmental Council staff will be on hand throughout the day to support you, and you’ll be able to pick up a handy guide to the Council’s legislative priorities to help you decide what you’d like to talk about. It also never hurts to bring a friend to join you as you chat with legislators.
Can’t travel to Des Moines? This is the perfect time to join our Action Alert Network. On February 22, we’ll e-mail you a link to contact your legislators via e-mail. It’s a great way to participate from wherever you live. And as an Action Alert Volunteer, you’ll be ready to speak out to decision-makers on a variety of environmental issues right when it matters most.
