Attend Environmental Lobby Day 2013 At The Iowa Statehouse

iowa capitoliaenvironment.org/

The Iowa Environmental Council cordially invites members and supporters to our 2013 Environmental Lobby Day at the statehouse.

This year’s event will be especially memorable because members of the Resource Enhancement and Protection (REAP) Alliance and the Iowa’s Water and Land Legacy (IWLL) Coalition are also planning to turn out in large numbers to support clean water and a healthy Iowa Environment.  (The Council is a member of both groups.)

WHERE:  First floor rotunda, Iowa State Capitol building, Des Moines
WHEN:  Tuesday, February 26, 2012, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (We’re planning a short press conference for mid-morning; the exact time will be announced soon.)

Commit to attend Lobby Day in person and we’ll send you updates about the event by e-mail!

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.

You are welcome to drop in any time throughout the day, but we will hold a short press conference at 11:00 a.m. that we encourage you to attend.

Agenda:

Supporters of clean water are encouraged to wear blue for this event.

8:00 a.m. Iowa’s Water and Land Legacy will hold a briefing on the Natural Resource and Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund in the Wallace Building Auditorium.

Following that, supporters will walk across Grand Avenue to the statehouse to meet with legislators.  Iowa Environmental Council member and partner organizations will have table displays in the Rotunda.

11:00 a.m. The Iowa Environmental Council will hold a brief press conference highlighting our key legislative priorities.

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 26, 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.
