Don’t keep this to yourself, Advocacy starts with sharing

Did your neighbor dive into get-out-the-vote issues this year? Do you have a church or book club member that attends ANC meetings? What about a classmate who points out the success (or failures!) of city mobility, transportation or greenspace initiatives? Don’t forget to share our upcoming Advocacy in the District online workshop!

Day 1 | November 17: Get an overview of the D.C. government and how development and policy is made in the District.

Day 2 | November 19: Learn how to be an effective advocate and how to write testimonies that you can present to the D.C. Council, Zoning Commission, and more!

Learn how to be a community advocate and protect DC’s trees at this fun, interactive workshop. Advocacy in the District will prepare you to navigate DC’s unique political geography to help increase tree canopy in your neighborhood and across the District. By the end of these two classes you will be on your way to reviewing development plans, writing persuasive public comments, and delivering testimony at important District hearings.

Upon completion of BOTH Advocacy in the District courses, you will be eligible to become a Certified Tree Advocate. However, you are welcome to attend Day 1 or Day 2 individually. Register for either or both classes today!
