Citizens' voices are needed in environmental advocacy. Here's an opportunity for Iowans to reach out to their legislators and speak up for their environment.
Iowa Environmental Advocacy Day
February 25, 12-3pm
Iowa Environmental Council's post on the subject:
Each legislative session presents opportunities to advocate for Iowa’s water, land, and climate. In 2021, IEC staff, advocates, and volunteers will push to for improvements in clean energy policy, water quality, energy efficiency, and more. This year we're doing things a little differently! We invite you to join us virtually on February 25 for two engaging events. You'll hear from advocates and legislators, learn how you can get involved, add your voice to our growing coalition, and support this important work.
Individual activists and organizations are encouraged to participate in Environmental Advocacy Day.
During Advocacy Day, you'll hear from environmental advocates and legislators, have a chance to participate in a free advocacy training session, network with environmental organizations and other Iowans engaged in this work. Environmental Advocacy Day will take place on Whova, an online event platform. Detailed instructions will be provided in advance of the program. Registration at this link - you can also register for the evening social event/fundraiser here.
The Minnesota Environmental Partnership is planning a similar event for April, in conjunction with Earth Day - more on that as information becomes available.
