Will your Members of Congress stand up for environmental education?

Yes! If you ask them!

Please join our EE Advocacy Call on Thursday, March 7, 2024, 1–2 PM ET to learn how you and/or your state environmental education Affiliate can help support federal funding for environmental education this month.

How You Can Make a Difference

In the coming weeks, Congressional appropriations committees will make initial decisions about what resources to allocate to the EPA and NOAA environmental education programs for the next fiscal year 2025. These programs are vital for the field—both for the professional development offerings they support, but also for their fantastic direct grant programs. March and April is the time for all constituents—including you!—to contact Members of Congress to support these critical governmental offices…and we will help you!

To secure funding for these programs, legislators need to be asked to endorse internal requests. More endorsements increase the chances of funding and potential increases for these programs.

Our key message: Environmental education is essential for addressing our local and national environmental issues.

Join Our Advocacy Call

So please join us to learn advocacy basics and a briefing on this year's campaign. This hour-long call will be recorded and posted to the eePRO Advocacy and Civic Engagement group.

Thank you for helping to support the future of environmental education!
