Plastic Pollution Advocacy Training

April 16 , 8:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

Calling All Environmental Warriors!

Join co-hosts Heal the Bay and 5 Gyres for a FREE virtual advocacy training to combat plastic pollution in California. Learn the power of grassroots activism and how to lead impactful campaigns targeting local and state plastic reduction efforts at our VIRTUAL training.

Master the tools to make a difference:

  • Understand key plastic pollution policies.
  • Craft persuasive messages for decision-makers.
  • Make impactful calls to representatives.
  • Submit compelling written comments on legislation.

This plastic policy workshop will be lead by Heal the Bay’s Coastal and Marine Scientist, Emily Parker and 5 Gyres Institute’s Policy & Programs Director, Alison Waliszewski. We will cover Senate Bill 1167 (Blakespear), a bill that will promote the use of reusable cups in the state of California, and the City of Los Angeles Comprehensive Plastics Program. Our experts will teach you about these policies and then together we will take action and contact key decision-makers to express support for reducing plastic pollution in our communities!

This event is hosted in partnership with the Reusable LA Coalition, The Story of Stuff Project, The Surfrider Foundation, and Californians Against Waste.

*Zoom link will be shared to all registered attendees before the training begins!
