Conservation Education Day | February 19, 2020
Conservation Education Day (CED) is your chance to join other environmentalists in meeting with your state legislators in Nashville face to face to promote the passage of bills that protect our water, air, and lands, and to block those which would do it harm. The goal is to have a meeting with every Tennessee legislator and develop a state-wide program to support building these relationships. That is the best way to ensure they will listen to you when an important issue arises.
There will be lobbying training and “ask” education in Nashville on the evening of Tuesday, Feb. 18th. We will broadcast the training via Zoom if you can't be there in person. Meetings with legislators will be held Wed. Feb. 19th between 8 am and 4 pm, and we will try to schedule them to fit your travel schedule.
The legislator meetings, each about 10 minutes long, cannot be arranged unless there will be a constituent at the meeting. We would love more CED participation from suburban and rural areas since these legislators get fewer constituent visitors and they appreciate you taking your time to meet with them.
Conservation Education Day (CED) has been a joint effort of the Tennessee Environmental Council, the Tennessee Sierra Club, Tennessee Conservation Voters and Tennessee Interfaith Power & Light for many years.
Please show your interest in participating by clicking the "meet my legislator" button below. When registering, we ask for your TN General Assembly Senate & House District numbers. If you don't know them, you may look them up here.
Bill Moll or Betsy Garber will contact you in regards to setting up your legislator meeting.
