Environmental organizations train New Mexicans to lobby legislators

Posted

A bevy of environmentalists will be taking to the Roundhouse to lobby legislators with a two-day convergence.

The Rio Grande chapter of the Sierra Club, and other organizations are hosting "Clean Energy Day" Jan. 29 from 8 a.m to 3 p.m. It will include speakers and visits with legislators. The day before, Jan. 28, the group will host a clean-energy conference.

"We need all New Mexicans to join us as grassroots activists at the Roundhouse this year," according to the event's Facebook page.

The Monday conference will include an overview of environmental legislation and keynote speakers such as Laura Paskus, an environmental journalist for New Mexico Political Report, and Destiny Watford, a "high school student [who] spearheaded the effort to stop a trash-burning incinerator in her neighborhood."

New Energy Economy, a Santa Fe-based organization, will also be hosting a "Just Transition Indigenous Leaders Reception" Jan. 27 in the evening. Visit riograndesierraclub.org/lobby-training/ and newenergyeconomy.org/jtc2019 for more information.
