Lobby Day 2023: Logistics and Resources
WWF Lobby Day is right around the corner, and we can’t wait to see you in Washington, DC, as you join your fellow advocates to impress upon your representatives how important it is to you that the US government continues to fund international conservation, to support global development initiatives and combat large-scale environmental threats, including wildlife trafficking, deforestation, overfishing, illegal timber trade, plastic pollution and climate change. Below is logistical information you will need for Lobby Day Training on Monday, March 6, and for Lobby Day itself, on Tuesday, March 7.
Please note that you will receive the schedule for your congressional meetings via email on Friday, March 3rd. The schedule will be hosted on the Soapbox Mobile Tool. You will receive instructions for logging into this portal separately.
To help you prepare for your meetings, we’ve put together a variety of resources for you to review. You will have the flexibility to view at your own pace and pause when needed. We have also included Frequently Asked Questions and links to look up your Member of Congress and begin familiarizing yourself with their background. Please review prior to March 6, 2023.
