Audubon Advocacy Training to Support 100 Percent Clean Energy [s]
January 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Audubon Washington, Eastside Audubon, and Pilchuck Audubon for a two-hour program dedicated to strengthening our advocacy and political influence on climate policy in the very important legislative districts where we reside.
In 2014 the National Audubon Society released a report finding that Climate Change threatened half of all North American Bird species. For us, these birds are a symbolic messenger of everything we cherish and everything we stand to lose in the face of a looming climate catastrophe. Washington State has aimed to lead the way on climate policy for a number of years, whether in the legislature or at the ballot box, but a cohesive statewide policy has remained a challenge.
This year, in the wake of a recent defeat at the ballot, the Washington legislature is better positioned than it’s ever been to pass meaningful climate policy. We are advocating for a suite of policies that would put Washington on a path to 100% clean energy before mid-century or earlier. But we can’t succeed without your help!
On the evening of Jan. 22, we are inviting everyone from the community to this informative meeting co-hosted by Audubon Washington, Eastside Audubon, and Pilchuck Audubon. This is similar to other community meetings around clean energy advocacy that Audubon has held in places like Edmonds, Mercer Island, Vancouver, and Issaquah. The meeting will be split up into two parts, first giving folks an overview of the big clean energy/environmental bills in the legislature. The second part will focus on developing effective advocacy tactics and building power in our communities that will be useful far beyond the legislative session!
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
