Be an Environmental Lobbyist for a Day
Once a year, Sierra Club California organizes a lobby day during which active Club members, working in small teams, meet with legislators and legislative staff to encourage legislators to support Sierra Club's priorities. Registration for the 2013 lobby day is limited to about 60 people. Participants begin the experience with a half-day training session by Sierra Club California lobbyists on a Sunday afternoon. Lobbying occurs on the following Monday. Sign up now to reserve a place!
August 18th and 19th
August 18th - 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm at 909 12th Street, Suite 202, Sacramento, CA 95814 (Light snacks and refreshments will be provided)
August 19th - 8:30 am to 5:30 pm at the Capitol Building (Continental breakfast will be provided)
Please note that meetings with legislators will be scheduled from 9 am to 4:30 pm with a lunch break between 11:30 am to 1 pm. During our lunch break, Sierra Club California will take the opportunity to give out awards to legislators who have made extraordinary efforts to protect the environment. We will have an affirmative time and location for the award ceremony in our final agenda, which will be handed out during our training session on Sunday.
All participants have the option to stay at the Sacramento International Hostel free of charge.

You can call the hotel at 916-441-1314 to book a room at your own expense. Please be sure to mention "Sierra Club Group" to get the discounted rate.

Refundable Deposit Requirement:
We require $30 deposit when you register. The deposit is refundable when you show up on August 18. If you reserve a space and don’t show, you won’t receive a refund—and we won’t have as many lobbyists as we need.
