Casey Trees is back with a two-part online advocacy workshop to equip District residents with the tools to advocate for increasing the tree canopy in neighborhoods across DC.
Casey Trees instructors will teach attendees how to navigate the city’s unique political geography. By the end of the two sessions, attendees will be on their way to reviewing development plans, writing persuasive public comments, and delivering testimony at important District hearings.
Upon completion of BOTH days of the Advocacy in the District courses, an attendee will be eligible to become a Certified Tree Advocate. However, a single Day 1 or Day 2 session can be attended individually.
In Day One, attendees will get an overview of the DC government and how development and policy is made in the District.
In Day Two, attendees will learn how to be an effective advocate and how to write testimonies for presentation to DC Council, the District Zoning Commission, and similar agencies and organizations.
The sessions will take place on Zoom from 7 to 8 p.m. on November 17 and 19, and are free for all District residents. Register now to reserve your spot at caseytrees.org/eotradvocate.
