CCAN Action Fund: 2021 Conservation Lobby Day
January 21 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Every year, Virginia Conservation Network’s 150+ environmental organizations come together to ensure a strong conservation voice is heard during the legislative session. Volunteer advocates join professional staff to meet with state legislators and encourage them to support strong conservation policy.
Along with all of our events this winter, our Lobby Day is going virtual. We are finalizing the format of this event as we approach our first virtual Conservation Lobby Day and appreciate your patience as slight changes in the schedule may occur. The tentative schedule for Lobby Day includes:
- 8 AM – 9 AM: Morning Kick-Off with guest speakers and legislators
- Throughout the day: Virtual 15-minute Zoom meetings with the offices of your Delegate and Senator. We will send you details of your meeting as soon as it is scheduled.
- 4 PM – 5 PM: Lobby Day Wrap-Up
This year’s lobby day will cover:
- Tackling climate pollution from transportation;
- Securing funding for our natural resources in order to clean up the Chesapeake Bay, protect our parks and natural landscapes & enhance our environmental agencies;
- Increasing utility accountability while meeting our clean energy goals;
- Improving environmental justice in the Commonwealth,
- And more!
This event is co-sponsored by: Virginia Conservation Network, the Virginia Sierra Club, the Piedmont Environmental Council, the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, and the Virginia League of Conservation Voters.
