March 18 – Lobby for Rivers Day – MA State House

Make your voice heard–virtually!

Join us for a Virtual Lobby for Rivers Day on Thursday, March 18, 2021, at 9 am.

This year may look a little different, but the Neponset River Watershed Association is once again joining with the Massachusetts Rivers Alliance and sister watershed associations across the state to urge our legislators to prioritize environmental program funding.

Environmental funding was decimated ten years ago, but with your help, we have successfully advocated for a gradual restoration of that funding. It’s more important than ever to make sure we are prioritizing efforts to clean our waterways, protect open space and restore habitat as we strive to make our communities more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

Register here!

How the Day Will Go
Lobby for the Rivers Day will begin at 9 AM with opening remarks by Mass Rivers, our legislative co-hosts, Senator Gobi and Representative Pignatelli, and other legislators who have been environmental champions. We’ll remind you of the day’s logistics, connect you with other participants from your area, and set the tone for a day of great conversations!

A member of your lobbying team will schedule a virtual meeting with your legislator and their staff for later that day, according to the legislator’s schedule. Meetings will be 15-30 minutes to discuss your top concerns regarding rivers and our environment and natural resources.

Please email NepRWA Advocacy Director, Kerry Snyder, with any questions.
