Please join us for the 23rd annual Earth Day Lobby Day in Albany, New York. Hear from state government and environmental leaders, learn about environmental bills that are pending in Albany, and lobby your state lawmakers on environmental issues that are important to you.

This year’s Earth Day Lobby Day will center on critically important environmental issues such as expanding solar energy, curbing greenhouse gas emissions, keeping toxic chemicals out of children’s products, and protecting New York from the dangers of hydrofracking. This year’s Earth Day Lobby Day will focus on four Super Bills, including:

1) Fracking Moratorium and Health Impacts Assessment (A.5425A / S.4236A)
2) New York Solar Bill (A.5060 / S.2522)
3) Child Safe Products (A.6328)
4) Global Warming Pollution & Control Act (A.6372 / S.735)

Join hundreds of environmentalists from across the state in advocating for measures to protect our air, water, land and health. No lobbying experience needed! This event is free and open to the public, but you must register to attend.
