Sierra Club Conservation Education Day

Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Please join the Sierra Club and other conservation organizations at the annual Conservation Education Day with the General Assembly. We attempt to meet with all State Senators and State Representatives on that day. One catch is that the legislators will only schedule an appointment with a constituent. Members in rural areas can help by attending a meeting with their senator and representative. We will have experts to accompany each group and give the talking points about current issues. There is an optional training session the evening of February 28 for attendees at Glendale Baptist Church. Visits are about 15 minutes each and consist of at least three people. Appointments are scheduled in advance, throughout the day.

To sign up for Conservation Education Day and for questions, please contact Charlie High by phone or text at (615) 500-5499 or by email at cahigh1722@aol.com.

Death Penalty Day on the Hill

Join Tennesseans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty on March 22nd at the Cordell Hull Building in Nashville. We will meet for a training session beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the Cordell Hull Building, located at 425 Rep. John Lewis Way N, Nashville, TN 37243.

We will meet on the 8th floor in conference room 8C. TADP Director Stacy Rector will lead a training for all those who plan to meet with lawmakers. This training is mandatory for anyone who will be making visits that day. TADP will set up your meetings for you and will provide you with the materials to make your visits with other TADP supporters. Meetings will be set up throughout the day, and you only need to attend the 8:30 a.m. training and your meetings if you are able. If you are not able to make your meetings because of conflicts with your schedule that day, TADP will provide you with a sample email that you can send to your lawmakers instead.
