Description

Annual SC Sierra Club Lobby Day!

Every year the SC Sierra Club hosts its Annual Earth Day Lobby Day. We strive to do it on or as close as possible to Earth Day, which is April 22nd each year. Due to Earth Day being on a non-legislative day this year and to scheduling with the SC General Assembly, we are having our Lobby Day on Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019.

RSVP to attend by clicking "Register" on this page

WHEN: SC Sierra Club Chapter office at 10:00 a.m. for legislative advocacy training, information on the legislation on which we will be advocating, and information on your lawmakers.

WHERE: The Chapter office is located at 1314 Lincoln St., Columbia, SC 29201. Our office is in the historic Luther Lee Building, and we will be meeting in the large downstairs "Gamecock Room."

PARKING: Note that there is parking footsteps away from the Luther Lee Building on the street and in a parking garage directly across the street on Lincoln St.

DESCRIPTION: Lobby Day legislative advocacy training will be led by our Chapter lobbyist and leaders within the organization beginning at 10:00 a.m. At 11:30 a.m., following conclusion of the training, attendees will head up to the State House. Upon re-convening in the State House at Noon, we will go up to the 2nd floor lobby and begin advocating before lawmakers. Shortly after Noon, we will be introduced as a group in either the balcony of the Senate or the House of Representatives. We will also have an opportunity to take a group photo on the State House steps. The day should wrap up by around 2:30 or 3:00 p.m.

In advance of the Lobby Day, should you wish to review the legislation we are working on, please visit our legislative tracker here: https://www.sierraclub.org/south-carolina/south-carolina-sierra-club-legislative-tracker.

Packets of informational, one-pager and legislator materials will be provided during the Lobby Day training.

MISCELLANEOUS: The Chapter will provide quarters for attendees to drive and/or carpool up to and park nearby the State House. This will provide enough time to find street parking and meet in the 1st floor downstairs lobby of the State House at 12:00 p.m.
