Lobby Day 2024: 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 the importance of bipartisan federal legislation to tackle the alarming influx of plastic waste, aiming to make plastic recycling, reuse, and reduction a congressional priority and a cross-party concern affecting all communities. Below is logistical information you will need for Lobby Day Training on Wednesday, March 6, and for Lobby Day itself, on Thursday, March 7.

Please note that you will receive the schedule for your congressional meetings via email on Friday, March 4th. The schedule will be hosted on the Advocacy Associates App. You will receive instructions for logging into this app 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 links to look up your Member of Congress and begin familiarizing yourself with their background.
