Event description
Join E2 and Best for Colorado for a day of advocacy at the capitol in support of the clean energy economy!

About this Event

How can you help with the fight for a better climate? Our lawmakers need to hear from business leaders like you! Learn how you can effectively support clean energy policies and directly engage with your legislators. Sign up for free to join our volunteer team of business leaders for a day of action.

Schedule for the Day: We ask you participate in both the prep session and the advocacy meetings from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please prepare a brief “elevator speech” in advance about who you are and where you work, and read the information we send prior to the event to make the most of the training.

10:00-11:30 a.m.

We will start the day with a workshop hosted at The Alliance Center to outline the process of public policy advocacy and learn how to effectively communicate environmental issues from a business perspective. You will learn best practices about speaking with legislators and receive content on current clean energy bills. The training will include a hands-on practice and refreshments.

12:30-4:30 p.m.

We will then take the free mall ride to Capitol Hill for the second part of the day and break out into small groups for a series of meetings with various legislators.

If you have questions, please contact Anne at bestforcolorado@thealliancecenter.org or Susan at snedell@e2.org. We will follow up shortly with more details about logistics and content.
