The Clean Green Lobby Machine is back again!
many of us began asking ourselves how we could get more involved and make sure our values are being prioritized in politics. And while that goal may seem impossibly high some days, I’m in the halls of the Oregon State Capitol every day reminding our elected about our environmental priorities.
That resolution you felt on November 9th should be a force for good – I’m hoping you will join us on Thursday, March 23rd. Here in Oregon we value transparency and connectedness with local political officials, and a lobby day is the perfect opportunity to get involved. Not only will you be joining your fellow OLCV members, you’ll be joining the environmental community as a whole for The Clean Green Lobby Machine!
We had over 220 people attend last year’s lobby day, and this year with threats to the EPA at the national level and the Elliott State Forest at the local level, it’s more important than ever that we show up to hold our elected leaders accountable and ensure Oregon is taking the lead on fighting climate change and protecting our natural legacy.
On March 23rd, join OLCV and the entire Oregon Conservation Network family for a chance to learn the ropes of the legislative process, hear about the politics, rally on the Capitol steps, and then lobby your own legislators on the 2017 Priorities for a Healthy Oregon. You will even have a chance to meet with your own senator and representative. A machine is a series of interconnecting parts working together to accomplish a goal – and you are the crucial part of the lobbying process that we need in order to be effective.
When: Thursday, March 23rd, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Where: 2nd floor of the MICAH Building at 680 State Street (across from the First United Methodist Church) in Salem
Why: Because you need to make YOUR voice heard!
This is a day when we have the opportunity to make an incredibly powerful statement for our environment -- and it’s a ton of fun! Sign up now.
You have an opportunity to affect change. We’ll see you there.
