Join Maine Conservation Alliance and our partners in Maine's Environmental Priorities Coalition for Conservation Lobby Day and a youth-led Climate Rally!
Tuesday, April 23, 2019
Conservation Lobby Day: 8:30 am–10:30 am
(Youth Climate Rally 11:30 am–12:45 pm)
Meet at Cross Cafe in the Cross Building (across from the State House)
Over breakfast, you'll learn how to lobby your legislators with tips and tricks from our experts. Then, we'll head over to the State House to demonstrate our support for bills to ban single-use plastic bags, invest in the Land for Maine’s Future program, and tackle climate change. Let's show up in force and build on the incredible momentum we've built so far.
Lobby Day will wrap up by 10 AM, and then we'll reconvene on the steps of the State House for a Youth Climate Rally at 11:30 (adult allies welcome).
Here's a tentative schedule for the day:
8:30 AM - Registration and breakfast at Cross Cafe in the Burton Cross Building
8:45 AM - Lobby training and information on EPC bills
9:30 AM - Meet and lobby your legislators at the State House
11:30 AM - Youth Climate Rally outside the State House
