Save this date and plan to join us as we visit the state capital for this annual event. We need as many people as possible to attend — to demonstrate and discuss the transition to clean energy future with our legislators. There will be a rally and a chance to meet with state legislators about the environment and a clean energy future. The night before, a reception is held to learn about key environmental bills in progress and to mingle with our state’s environmental activists and legislative supporters.
