Citizens for Progressive Transit, a grassroots advocacy group, is holding its annual lobbying day at the state Capitol on Tuesday, Feb. 17.
Members and non-members who want to speak with Georgia lawmakers about the need for more transit, cleaner air and a less auto-dependent lifestyle are urged to meet with the group at the Central Presbyterian Church across the street from the Capitol on Tuesday morning. There, you'll receive a briefing and then make your way to the Gold Dome to advocate your cause.
Full details are after the jump.
From the organization:
Join us for Transit Lobby Day and stand up for clean air, less driving, and expanding public transit. Experienced lobbyists will share their tips at an orientation session across the street from the Capitol. Then we'll cross the street to talk to our legislators.
Please Register by visiting the Georgia Conservancy Web Page and entering your name, address and email address. Your address will be used to identify the appropriate elected officials for lobbying.
