Take Action: Attend our Next Tree Advocates Meeting
This month’s Tree Advocates Meeting will include an hour-long public speaking training, “Speak Like A Pro”, led by a professionally-trained public speaking coach. Here, we will discuss the essentials of competence and character when giving a presentation, providing public testimony, or speaking with a key decision-maker. Our meeting will also include two brief discussions led by our graduate Tree Advocates: “How to Engage with Mayoral Candidates”, and “How to Run for ANC Commissioner”, followed by a report out on Advocacy Actions for the upcoming months.
Here are some tools and resources that will help you stand up for trees in your neighborhood and throughout the District.
