You’re invited: Environmental Lobby Day on January 29

In the 2019 legislative session, we have the best chance in over a decade to make real change to protect and sustain Washington’s environment!

Join Friends of the San Juans at Environmental Lobby Day on January 29 in Olympia. Come help push key environmental legislation to recover the health of Southern Resident orcas, reduce plastic pollution with a statewide Reusable Bag Bill, get to 100% clean energy, prevent oil spills and more!

During lobby day, you will team up with other activists to speak up for the environment and gain the skills to be a persuasive constituent. You’ll have the opportunity to attend issue briefings, learn how to lobby, hear from environmental champions, and meet face-to-face with your elected officials to advance the Environmental Priorities Coalitions 2019 priorities.

Friends has done so much to identify those critical beaches where the forage fish are spawning and that is work that I value greatly. Once we know the spawning locations, we can permanently protect those very important beaches.
