An Urban Adventure
This fall, Broads come out of the wilderness to don lobbying suits, trading hiking boots for walking shoes, for an urban Washington D.C. Broadwalk adventure. Take your advocacy skills to a new level: learn effective lobbying techniques and put them into action.
Take Broads’ Advocacy Full Circle!
This is an opportunity to lobby for legislation introduced at the Redwoods Broadwalk and Habitat Connectivity Broadwalks. Consider planning a “two-fer” so you can speak from your heart to your congressional representatives when you take what you learned from these Broadwalks to D.C.
We will meet with elected officials to request support for:
- The Continental Divide Wilderness Bill
- Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act
- Northwest California’s Mountains & Rivers Bill
These Wilderness bills have strong potential for Congressional support due to recreational components, historic building protections, and wildfire mitigation solutions.
- We will also stress the importance of the Antiquities Act, the Endangered Species Act, and keeping public lands in public hands.
Doing the D.C. Dance
The first afternoon, we’ll settle in and review our objectives. The next two days, we’ll meet with elected officials and their staff, using face-to-face conversations to forge relationships, secure co-sponsors for legislation, and show support for those that support wilderness.
The third day we’ve saved to wrap up meetings, explore the world-renowned museums and galleries found in our nation’s capital (the Smithsonian museums are FREE), or wander along the Potomac River and take in the fall colors. We will immerse ourselves in all D.C. has to offer.
Digs, Dining, and Travel
We’ll stay in three connecting, super-large condos in a great location—two blocks from the Metro Station and 10 minutes from restaurants, grocery stores, and other retail establishments. Each participant will have her own bed (except one king that will be shared—couples? BFFs?). There are plenty of bathrooms where you can get dolled up for your days on the Hill.
Broads will provide lodging and breakfasts. You’re on your own for snacks, lunches, and dinners. There are plenty of fabulous restaurants in D.C., however, if you choose to stay in and prepare your meals, there are fully equipped kitchens in each condo.
We’ll use the Metro to get downtown; it’s a short 20-minute ride to where the action is. Senior and visitor discounts are available on some fares.
We encourage you to register early to reserve your spot so you can start shopping for inexpensive flights (if you plan to fly).
