Thursday, March 18, 2021, at 9 am

We made need to use Zoom this year, 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 toz;

  • clean our waterways
  • protect open space
  • restore habitat
  • make our communities more resilient to the impacts of climate change

There will be training!
Never lobbied before? Don’t know who your state rep is? No worries. Join with other advocates for a Pre-Lobby Workshop on Tues., March 16 at 7 pm. We’ll review the issues and you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions.

How Lobby for the Rivers Day Will Go
The 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.

    The Neponset river flows through our neighborhood. A sign remains on a tree saying it is toxic. We are concerned this body of water is neglected and dangerous to our families.
