9 Ways you can Get involved today
Across the Great Lakes State, folks like you are doing more than ever before to protect our state’s natural resources. We have regional coordinators in southeast, west, southwest, and northern Michigan as well as a growing statewide membership of more than 50,000 citizens.
Whether you are most concerned about protecting your clean air, safe drinking water, or the natural spaces you love, you can make a difference by joining the team right here in Michigan. It takes people like you to get organized and get active to make progress!
1. Take action online
Urgent: Great Lakes Face Extreme Cuts!
President Trump’s early budget proposal eliminates funding for protecting and restoring the Great Lakes! Join us in urging the head of the EPA, Scott Pruitt, to do his job and fight back against these proposals.
Tell your legislators you know the score!
Check out our 2015-2016 Legislative Scorecard, then tell your legislators that you care about conservation and environmental issues, and are paying attention to how they vote.
It will take all of us working together to hold the line for our natural resources in the fights ahead. Our nation is poised to turn back toward dirty energy, clean drinking water can no longer be taken for granted in our communities, and our parks and public lands are on the chopping block.
Backing down is out of the question, but we need your support for these fights if we’re going to win. Please take a moment to stand up for your family, your Great Lakes, and the Michigan you know and love.
Please consider making your contribution monthly. We are facing unprecedented challenges and receiving monthly support makes a big difference.
3. Get breaking alerts
We are excited to open our mobile alert program for sign ups at this time! While still under development, our mobile alert program gives members who opt in access to opportunities for advocacy in the format that is easiest for them!
4. Get social with us
5. Share your story
Climate change is one of the most significant social, economic, and environmental issues facing our planet.
Instead of hearing from experts in the arenas of science and policy, Michiganders want to hear from people like you—their neighbors, friends and community members—who are feeling the impact of decisions being made in Lansing.
6. Connect with your neighbors
We have regional coordinators in four regions of the state: southeast, southwest, west, and northern Michigan. Our awesome team loves getting to know activists like you and are here to help you plug into the fight for our communities and our natural resources!
Even if you’re not in one of our core regions, reach out and we’ll be happy to help you get involved locally! While we don’t have coordinators in every corner of the state yet, we have a statewide membership and volunteer teams are already active in communities around Michigan!
