Where: Convene at Asbury United Methodist Church (87 West St, Annapolis, 21401), then head to the General Assembly Office Buildings to meet with legislators.

Need a ride or can you offer space in your car?  Carpool to reduce emissions.  Talk with Doneby Smith (donebys@gmail.com) or Bruce McConachie (bamcco@pitt.edu) about the bills you can lobby for and carpooling to get to Annapolis. 

2. The Sierra Club is lobbying on 4 climate-related bills the week after that, on Feb 24.
