We track legislation, budgets, policies, events and other issues related to environmental issues at the state and federal levels with the aid of our Environmental Issues Working Group. Each week, this team of volunteers shares news stories, research and other information on a range of environmental topics, discusses which items are ripe for action, and writes calls to action (C2As) that inform others and offer suggested actions. Members volunteer about an hour a week–a little more if they are writing that week’s call to action–and conduct their business via a closed Facebook page. Our C2As are distributed to 15,000-20,000 Mainers each week via our email list, our member forum and our partnerships with other regional and state groups. You can read some of our most recent environmental C2As below.
If the environment is important to you and you have an hour or two to spare over an entire week, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org about joining our Environmental Issues Working Group!
