Resist: Skills to Fight Back for Maine’s Environment (Portland)
March 8, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
It’s time to resist the Trump administration’s attacks and work together to protect our environment, our health, and our way of life. Join us to learn the skills you need to be an powerful activist right now.
First, you will learn about the current threats and our efforts to protect our national parks, grow solar power in Maine, and defend the crucial Clean Air Act. Then you learn the skills to make a difference – how to lobby your legislators on issues that matter to you, how to make an impact with your unique story, and how to get the message out using social media and letters to the editor.
There will be a lot of fun actions to take and plenty of networking with other Mainers who want to take a stand right now for Maine’s environment. We’ll provide snacks and drinks to fuel our activism.
