Today, Sept. 12, is River Lobby Day in Washington, DC!
As you read this, more than 130 river activists from across the country are walking the halls of Congress, meeting face-to-face with their elected officials, and delivering a message about the need to protect and restore rivers in our communities. Join them in your very own virtual lobby day by dialing for rivers today!
Today, we hope to generate a record number of phone calls to Congress from Americans who care about healthy rivers and clean water. The powerful combination of phone calls and in-person meetings will demonstrate to Congress how much Americans care about rivers and that we hold our elected leaders accountable for ensuring healthy rivers for our communities.
