| Come to Sacramento to lobby for the environment
Sierra Club California invites you to Sacramento for our annual Lobby Day on Monday,
August 25th. This is your chance to meet with legislators to advocate for current
environmental issues on behalf of Sierra Club.
Lobby Day provides activists with an opportunity to talk with legislators and
their staff about the Sierra Club’s statewide priorities and specific legislation
that is pending before the Senate and Assembly. Lobby Day brings Sierra Club’s
grassroots power to the State Capitol and allows legislators to see the faces
behind one of California’s most influential environmental advocacy organizations.
The Club will conduct a training session in political effectiveness the day before
Lobby Day, on the afternoon of Sunday, August 24th. Through discussion, role-play
and some real-life examples, we will instruct you on how to make the most of your
time with an elected official and how to use lobbying to help achieve the goals
of a larger campaign. The training will give you the skills to become an effective
lobbyist with elected officials both in Sacramento and at home.
This year, we anticipate our topics to include electronic waste disposal, forest
protection, land use and air quality.
Sierra Club California will provide dinner Sunday, August 24th, as well as breakfast
on Monday. Accommodations will be arranged and participants will be reimbursed
up to $100 for travel expenses. For more details, please contact Marianne
Batchelder, (916) 557-1100 x107 or Pat
