Collaboration is the key to effective advocacy. United by our focus on core issues of the environment, public health and social justice, Green California partners help provide lawmakers with a real sense of the environmental community’s most important priorities. Facilitated by the CLCV Education Fund, Green California empowers CLCV and our partner organizations to make more progress with fewer resources.
On Advocacy Day, every hallway of the Capitol Building in Sacramento echoed with the voices of Green California advocates sharing our collective values with decision-makers. Nearly 100 members and staff of the State Senate and Assembly routinely open their doors to engage with us on major priorities, including climate change, protecting the California Environmental Quality Act, improving drinking water quality and access, and keeping our communities safe from exposure to toxic chemicals.
Nothing in politics can compare with face-to-face dialogue. Each one of our meetings on Green California Advocacy Day features fully-informed in-person conversations on fundamental issues – and how related decisions facing legislators right now will impact Californians.
Green California Advocacy Day succeeds year after year because our dedicated partners and fellow Californians pitch in, lend a hand, and communicate our shared environmental values to elected officials. Together, we raise the bar for environmental advocacy in California.
