Although we are expecting significant new legislation to pass this session, and the Biden administration has made dealing with climate change a major focus, there is much work to be done, and LWVMA members can make a difference. Public education and outreach are key to advancing policies, and no one does education and outreach better than the League!

A Steering Committee to support action and advocacy on the environment is being formed.  The committee of 10-12 leaders from across the state will work together to connect and guide Leagues within their regions to advance LWV action and advocacy on critical energy and environmental issues.  Contact Launa Zimmaro or Karen Price if you would like to be a part of this important effort.
