Advocacy in the District

January 18 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EST

Free
Learn how to be a community advocate and protect D.C.’s trees at this fun, interactive workshop.

Advocacy in the District will prepare you to navigate D.C.’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.

Class 1 | Jan 18th, 2021 | 11am – 12pm: Get an overview of the D.C. government and how development and policy is made in the District.

Class 2 | Jan 18th, 2021 | 1pm – 2pm: 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!

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 Class 1 or Class 2 individually.
