Also, new this year, there will be a session titled Activism 2.0, for folks who are ready to take their activism to the next level to help build the environmental movement. Register here!
Environmental Lobby Day

No one who attends this exciting and engaging day goes away unchanged. Participating in the democratic process is joyful and empowering. Please join Earth Ministry staff, many people of faith, and friends of the environment throughout Washington State in Olympia to meet your legislators and support good climate legislation. Your voice will make a difference! Registration for Lobby Day will be available later in December. More information is available here.
Interfaith Advocacy Day
Thursday, March 17, 2011
United Churches and State Capitol, Olympia, WA
This event, sponsored by Earth Ministry and an interfaith coalition of statewide religious organizations, brings people of faith from all over Washington to Olympia for a day to advocate for a unified social justice agenda. On this day, Earth Ministry members and friends come together to speak as one voice with the larger faith community on behalf of creation care and protection of our climate. This year, because our goals are strong and challenging, your voice is particularly important to convince legislators to be bold in voting for climate protection.
