Road trip!! Climate & Clean Energy Lobby Day
June 14, 2016 @ 11:00 am
Join crowd of like-minded advocates from all around the state for the Climate and Clean Energy Lobby Day at the state capital in Harrisburg! The day will include rally, press conference and legislative meetings attended by citizens and volunteers from across the commonwealth.
Sponsored by the Clean Power PA Coalition (MAREA is a member), the goal is to educate legislators on the need to support the Clean Power Plan in Pennsylvania, in order to cut climate disrupting carbon pollution. Travel on your own or join chartered bus, leaving from Edgewood Towne Centre (address above) at 6:30 am.
We aim to have[masked] participants from diverse backgrounds and professions to demonstrate to decision makers that we are the “Climate Majority.” We will be educating legislators on the need for climate action, and asking them to demonstrate their support for the Clean Power Plan to the Governor, so that he is empowered to draft a strong and just plan for Pennsylvania.
You will be meeting your legislators (or in some cases their staff) with other constituents from his/her district. We will provide fact sheets and a letter to leave behind. If you have never met with your legislator before, don’t be intimidated. You are one of their bosses, and we will provide a training before the event.
Please be prepared to share a brief but personal reason why action on climate is so important to you; personal stories are memorable and effective!
Please dress comfortably but neatly; we will be providing everyone with a matching t-shirt so that we stand out and are recognizable in the halls.
11:30-noon: Rally in East Rotunda of Capitol
Noon-3:30ish: participants meet with their PA Representative and Senator for approximately 30 minutes each. In between meetings there will be opportunities for tabling, letter writing, phone banking, and other activities in support of climate action.
4pm: Buses leave Harrisburg
