The Green Sanctuary Committee is sponsoring Civic Sunday during the Coffee Hour on Sunday, December 3, 2017. With the Maryland legislative session starting in January, get ready for political action. Find out who represents you in Washington, DC and Annapolis and how to contact them. Members of the Green Sanctuary Committee will be on hand with laptops to look up your legislators. All you need to provide is your address and zip code. Please bring a cell phone with you so you can make a note or take a photo.
Our Green Sanctuary Committee will need your help to advocate for legislation that seeks to expand and strengthen our state’s renewable energy laws in order to:
- increase the percentage of energy coming from wind and solar sources,
- support the development of a diverse, clean-energy workforce, and
- stop counting trash incineration (which contributes to carbon dioxide and particulate air pollution) as a “renewable” source of energy.
Of course, once you are equipped with names and contact information, you will have the means to contact any of your representatives about any issue that concerns you—racial justice, education, taxes—whatever matters to you!
