Intro to Legislative Advocacy Workshop
November 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
World leaders from more than 100 countries are currently meeting in Glasgow for the 26th United Nations Climate Conference. However, as climate pledges fall short and tensions between developing and developed nations escalate, the likelihood of breakthrough action at this conference is uncertain. Further, research suggests that even if all parties to the Paris Agreement met their emissions reduction targets, the Earth would still be on track to warm 2.7 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by 2100 — which could trigger a number of irreversible climate tipping points.
At a time marked by complacency at the national and global level, state-level action on climate change is more important than ever. That’s why 350 Colorado is preparing for active engagement at the State Capitol during the 2022 Legislative Session this spring. Currently, we’re working to build a grassroots army of passionate, well-informed volunteers that will help us advance important climate solutions and hold Colorado’s fossil fuel industry accountable – and we’ll need all the help we can get.
Join 350 Colorado on Saturday, November 20th for our ‘Intro to Legislative Advocacy‘ workshop, where we will teach you everything you need to know to become an advocate for climate progress at the Colorado State Legislature this spring. See the Facebook Event for more details about our ‘Intro to Legislative Advocacy Fall Workshop’ and to help spread the word.
When: Saturday, November 20th, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Where: Remote – Register for the Zoom workshop here.
At our workshop, you’ll learn everything you need to know about the Colorado State Legislature, how a bill becomes a law, and how you can advocate for climate solutions at the Capitol this spring. You’ll even hear from Representative Edie Hooton from Colorado’s House District 10 about how to make your climate advocacy as effective as possible.
