Earth Day Grassroots Lobbying 101 by the Land Stewardship Project
April 22, 2021 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
You are the expert when it comes to your experiences and your community. When we come together, grounded in our shared vision, we have the power to shape our planet and our future.
There is incredible potential to advance the best proposals in the Minnesota legislature, and stop the worst ones — but we need you. Your story has the power to move our public officials on our issues and values.
Join this training on Earth Day (Thursday, April 22) from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to learn how to lobby effectively, receive tangible tools, connect with your neighbors, and be ready to take the initiative in your community. You don’t need to be an expert or a professional to lobby decision-makers — all you need is your own story, courage, and some tools.
Building a stronger, healthier future for people and the planet requires us to develop and strengthen relationships with decision-makers, share our stories to make issues tangible, and move decision-makers to align with our priorities. Constituent advocacy is one of the most effective tools we have — and we can do it safely from home by using telephone and video calls.
