Stand Up for Trees this Month

If you love D.C.’s trees, then stand up for them by taking our free, one-day advocacy workshop — Stand Up for Trees that takes place two times a year in summer and winter.

We always want to keep our programming fresh and current, so we revamped the workshop to make it even more engaging and incorporate more real-life cases impacting D.C.’s trees than ever before.

Participants work in groups to analyze development projects, prepare and present mock public testimony, play games testing their tree protection knowledge, and more. Don’t take our word for it though, here’s what other folks have said:

“It was informative, well-paced and a lot of fun.”
“This was perhaps the most polished, thoughtful, impressive training session I have ever attended.”

You do not need any previous advocacy experience to attend this workshop, but space is limited so advance registration is required. If you’ve already attended Stand Up, consider looking into Advocacy Actions you can take or other ways to get involved.
