Birders & the Ballot Box: Turning Out the Environmental Vote with David Robinson
Birders know the vital importance of having pro-bird, pro-environment policymakers in office. From legislation such as the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, to climate-change urgency vs. climate-change denial, to environmental justice for historically overburdened communities, the response to issues we care so deeply about depends overwhelmingly on elected officials and the people they appoint. And yet millions of environmentalists don’t consistently show up to the polls! In this interactive workshop, Tucson Audubon’s Director of Conservation Advocacy, David Robinson, will present the facts about environmentalists and voting, and will teach attendees how to take part in highly effective, nonpartisan efforts to turn inconsistent environmentalist voters into environmentalist super-voters in time for the upcoming midterms — all while having fun with fellow bird-lovers!
Registration for this event is free. This event will be held virtually over zoom.
