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 Utah, you will share your perspective on legislative policy regarding our four main goals: To protect communities from air pollution, to build an inclusive energy future, to build climate resiliency and health equity, and to protect communities from toxic and radioactive waste.


These goals reflect our commitment to addressing the pressing environmental challenges facing our communities and working towards a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future for Utah.

How does it work?

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.
