Together we know the impact our collective efforts have on our local community, the greater state of Utah, and the nation as a whole. So, it’s imperative that we reflect on all the hard work that our many dedicated volunteers, determined lobbyists, and generous donors contributed to our numerous efforts this past year.
Lobby with HEAL
Who are Community Lobbyists?
Community lobbyists help influence and encourage state legislators to implement community-centered solutions to Utah’s biggest environmental threats. As a community lobbyist with HEAL, you will share your perspective on legislative policy regarding clean energy, air quality, and radioactive waste with your elected representatives.
How does it work?
HEAL Utah’s policy team monitors and actively participates in every step of the legislative process on our three main issues (clean air, clean energy, and radioactive waste).
Community Lobbyists (that’s you!) are called in when we see an opportunity for the public to provide feedback and voice their concerns or support on proposed legislation. Our team preps fact sheets + talking points and is here to help you contact your lawmakers.
Why is this important?
Lawmakers only have 45 days to vote on many issues, and most of the time, they don’t have all the information needed to make an informed decision on legislation. By providing your perspective on an issue, you could be the one voice to sway a lawmaker to vote in support of or against a critical piece of legislation.
