E-M:/ Arctic Advocacy Workshop

      The Alaska Coalition of Michigan is hosting two Arctic Advocacy Workshops. On Monday, November 7, it will be held in the Wealthy St. Theatre Community Room from 2pm to 6pm in Grand Rapids and we’ll follow up with a social event at a nearby eating/drinking establishment. On Tuesday, November 8, the same workshop will be held in the Dana Building (in the northeast corner of the diag on U of M’s central campus), Room 2024 from 4pm to 8pm in Ann Arbor. The critical vote on whether or not to continue protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is coming up in less than two weeks! Now is the time to make sure Representative Ehlers does the right thing.

     The National Outreach Director of the Alaska Coalition, Shoren Brown, is coming to town to conduct this great training session. Shoren has been a grassroots organizer for over a decade and is an expert on Alaskan wilderness. This is an amazing opportunity to learn about the Arctic, basic and advanced grassroots organizing skills applicable to any issues, and how to make sure the Refuge stays protected for the long-term. Skills trainings will include Campaign Strategy, Media Messaging and Outreach, and Grassroots Organizing Tools.

     The Alaska Coalition is a broad group of conservation, sporting, religious, labor, and student organizations that work together to protect Alaska’s wild lands through coalition and grassroots organizing.

     Space is limited, so please RSVP to dfavre@alaskacoalition.org or 734-662-6597 to reserve your spot. Feel free to contact me with any questions as well. Please spread this message around to anyone who will be interested.

    I look forward to seeing you there!

Best, Dan
