Climate Lobby Day at Colorado Statehouse

Join 350 Colorado & Food & Water Watch for our 2nd annual Climate Lobby Day! Whether you’ve never lobbied before or you have your legislator’s phone number on speed dial, our 2018 Legislative Lobby Day is an important event that will put you in direct contact with your elected officials and make your voice heard! 

Most state representatives and senators say that they don’t hear from their constituents very often, but you can bet that oil and gas lobbyists are in contact with them frequently. That’s why it’s more important than ever for constituents who are concerned about our climate to have a presence at the statehouse. It’s time to be seen, and be heard!
