Legislators say that the voices of their constituents are the most important voices they most need to hear. That’s why every year, the Natural Resources Council of Maine hosts our members and supporters for Citizen Action Day — a day for Maine citizens to come to the State House in Augusta to speak with their legislators about important issues affecting Maine’s environment.

The morning starts with brief presentations by NRCM staff experts and tips for speaking with your legislators. Then, together, we take a short walk to the State House where we help you connect with your elected official. There’s also often opportunity to attend a public hearing or take a guided tour of the State House (optional). We provide free breakfast and lunch.

Join us for our next Citizen Action Day on Tuesday, March 10, 2020.
