Environmental Lobby Day
February 9, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
Volunteers from throughout the state, new and experienced, will be gathering at the Arizona State Capitol to meet with state legislators to express support for environmental protection. This is a great opportunity to learn and to advocate for what you love.
This year’s theme is Water is Life: Creating a Conservation Vision of Arizona’s Water Future, featuring William deBuys, author of The Last Unicorn, Seeing Things Whole, and A Great Aridness, among others. He will discuss the implications of climate change on our waters, what it means for our arid state, and why it is critical that we act to protect Arizona’s waters.
Everyone will be part of a team with an experienced leader and will be meeting with his or her own legislators, whenever possible. You can come for an hour or two or stay all day. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the legislative process and the issues and to make a difference.
The Coalition is organizing a charter bus to travel from Tucson to Phoenix. Please email Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to reserve your spot. We will leave Tucson from the Historic Y (738 N. 5th Ave) at 6am and will return around 5pm.
