Event Description: 

The 2015 session of the General Assembly ends on June 3rd, and it is amazing how much happens within the last 3 weeks of the session.

If you like engaging in the political process and making a difference on important issues that would benefit (or harm) forests, parks, open space, and walking trails, CFPA encourages you to join our advocacy team.

In the last weeks of session, it is extra effective to have volunteers who live (and vote) in the communities represented by leaders of the General Assembly as well as leaders of key committees.  So, you get extra bonus points if your legislator is one of the following leaders:

We need people who are willing to contact their State legislators, and will also encourage their friends, colleagues, and social networks to do the same.

Please SIGN UP on CFPA’s email list for notices, or contact CFPA Executive Director Eric Hammerling via ehammerling@ctwoodlands.org for more information on key issues and timing.
