Individual activists and organizations are encouraged to participate in Environmental Advocacy Day. The event is free for individuals and IEC member organizations, with minimal costs for non-member organizations.
During Advocacy Day, you'll hear from environmental advocates and legislators, have a chance to participate in a free advocacy training session, network with environmental organizations and meet other Iowans engaged in the work of protecting and improving policies to clean our land and water and grow our clean energy.
Environmental Advocacy Day will take place on Whova, an online event platform. Detailed instructions will be provided in advance of the program.
After you learn and act, you're invited to join IEC for an engaging online evening of music, cocktails, and advocacy!
You'll start the evening enjoying live music from an Iowa musician and get firsthand instruction in mixing a unique, IEC themed cocktail with a local bartender (we'll provide everything but the alcohol).
Then as you enjoy your beverage, you'll learn more about IEC’s work to make Iowa a better place to live, work, and explore through writing postcards to your representatives.
Tickets range from $15 to $65. Learn more and RSVP.
Organizations wishing to have a virtual booth for Environmental Advocacy Day must pre-register, even if they have participated in past years. IEC will be using Whova to offer virtual booths that allow engagement with attendees. Additionally, organizations with a booth will have the opportunity to put on their own virtual workshop for attendees. Detailed information will be provided. Priority is given to Iowa Environmental Council member organizations, which may reserve display space at no cost as a benefit of membership.
We look forward to welcoming you to one or both of our advocacy events on February 25 - you can purchase ticket bundles for one or both events depending on your interest. Sponsorships are available for the Environmental Mixology event.
If you have questions or issues registering for either program, please contact Megan McDowell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
