EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT: 2018 Michigan Sierra Club Citizen Lobby Day

Sierra Club's 2018 Citizen Lobby Day!

Wednesday, April 11  •  8:45am - 3:30pm  •  Lansing



Lobby Day will convene at the Central United Methodist Church in Lansing at 8:45am. The church is located at 215 N. Capitol Ave., Lansing, at the corner of Capitol & Ottawa, just across the street from the Capitol Building. We’ll be pushing lawmakers to oppose Senate Bills 652-654 which would create committees/panels that are stacked with industry and heavy polluter representatives to review all rule-making and permit decisions of the Department of Environmental Quality. This is popularly referred to as “the fox guarding the hen-house” legislation. We'll also be lobbying in support of HB 4200-4202 and SB 154/156 which restores citizen oversight to the Departments of Environmental Quality and Natural Resources.

All lobbying takes place in teams of 2 to 4 people. Each team will be led by an experienced Lead Lobbyist who knows their way around the Capitol and will lead the meetings. No experience is necessary. Please join us by signing up here.

Lobby Day is $10, which is payable at the event by check, cash, or credit card. This helps us cover half of the event cost. REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS Friday, April 6th AT 5PM.  SIGN UP NOW!


For more information, contact Mike.Berkowitz@sierraclub.org or 248-345-9808.
