Atlantic Chapter

Explore, enjoy, and protect the planet.

Green Jobs/Green Planet Lobby Day
At Your Local State Legislative District Offices

On March 6th, nearly 150 Atlantic Chapter Sierrans visited State Senators and Assemblymembers in every corner of New York State - simultaneously - urging them to prioritize green jobs that protect our precious natural resources.

AND 1,159 Atlantic Chapter Sierrans sent over 2,300 emailed letters to State Legislators in four days!

On One Day - In One Voice - Many Sierrans

Speaking Out from Every Corner of New York State!

GREEN JOBS/GREEN PLANET LOBBY DAY: Friday March 6th

Thank you for participating in this powerful day for the environment!

 

The Issues

As you know, federal stimulus monies are coming to NYS. Let's make sure Legislators spend it wisely, on projects that not only create jobs, but that lower carbon emissions and protect our air, land, and water. We won't see an opportunity like this again for a long time - billions of dollars are at stake!

On Friday, March 6th, you have the opportunity to join New York State Sierrans from Long Island to Buffalo, urging elected officials to: 

  • Spend the federal stimulus monies wisely on Green Jobs that protect the planet, such as energy efficient building retrofits;
  • Save the Environmental Protection Fund from devastating cuts;
  • Protect our water from the natural gas drilling process;
  • Pass the Bigger Better Bottle Bill;
  • And more on local initiatives to protect the environment in your community!

 

The most powerful message is the one given in person; however we recognize that lobbying is not possible for everyone. Here are your options for March 6th:

  • Visit your legislators at a specific time with other Sierra Atlantic Chapter members;
  • Stop by the legislator’s office at any time that day convenient for you, and leave a letter at the front desk (a template will be provided to you). Be sure to sign the guestbook!
  • Print and mail a letter to your legislators (a template will be provided)
  • Email a letter to your legislators (we’ll give you everything you need).

(And do you have some time to volunteer to help make phone calls or write letters-to-the-editors of local newspapers? Let us know when you RSVP.)

Next Steps

After you RSVP, a local Sierra Club volunteer will contact you with details of the event. 

Never visited your State Senator or Assemblymember? No problem! We will make this event as easy as possible for you to participate.

You are the voice of the environment. Legislators want to hear from you. We want to help your voice be heard. RSVP for the Green Jobs/Green Planet lobby day today!
