Resist: Skills to Fight Back for Maine’s Environment @ Bangor High School
Apr 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The time has come to resist the onslaught of attacks to Maine’s environment. We need to work together to protect our environment, our health, and our way of life. Join us to learn the skills you need to be a powerful activist right now.

First, you will learn about current environmental threats and our efforts to protect our public lands, defend the Clean Air Act, and preserve the EPA’s budget. Then you will learn the skills to make a difference: how to lobby your legislators on issues that matter to you, how to craft a powerful message, and how to effectively communicate your message.

There will be a lot of fun actions to take and plenty of networking with fellow Mainers who want to take a stand right now for Maine’s environment. We will provide some light refreshments, so please be sure to grab dinner before the event starts.

Join us!

Co-hosted by Maine Public Health Association, Maine Conservation Alliance, Natural Resources Council of Maine, Appalachian Mountain Club, and The Wilderness Society.
