The 2015 Arizona Legislative Session is just around the corner and so is Environmental Day at the Capitol. The session starts on January 12th with a State of the State address by the new governor. This will be a challenging session for environmental protection. We will again be providing a watchdog function at the Legislature -- working to stop bad policies and promoting a few good ones as well -- and will be keeping you informed via regular legislative updates and alerts, briefings, and more. Thank you for your past support and I look forward to working with you in the new session.

Mark Your Calendar: Environmental Day at the Capitol

On January 22, 2015, environmental advocates from throughout the state, new and experienced, will be gathering at the Arizona State Capitol to meet with state legislators to express support for clean air, clean energy, and clean water, as well as land conservation, and more. Come be part of one of our teams! 

Environmental Day at the Capitol
Thursday, January 22, 2015
8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Arizona State Capitol
Old Senate Chambers, 2nd Floor
1700 W. Washington, Phoenix

Everyone will be part of a team with an experienced leader and will be meeting with his or her own legislators, whenever possible. You can come for an hour or two or stay all day. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the legislative process and the issues and to make a difference.

Also, let us know if you are interested in setting up or participating in a Citizen Lobby Workshop prior to Environmental Day.
