Advocate for our environment! Whether you have never visited a legislator’s office or you are an old hand at it, the Grandparents Climate Action Dayprogram offers you the opportunity to learn and update your lobbying skills. On Wednesday, not only will you be inspired by the keynote addresses by James Hansen, of Columbia University's Earth Institute, and Lynne Twist, author of The Soul of Money, you will also receive lobbying training from the Citizens Climate Lobby. On Thursday (Lobby Day), advocate for new energy policies that address climate change and would provide economic benefit to our country.
If you want to be a lobby group leader, register by August 5 and participate in a special webinar training in August. UUSJ hopes that those who recieve this training will continue to lead advocacy groups to the Hill as part of ifuture UUSJ advocacy activities. Can't attend? Sign the petition urging Congressional Action.
