Environmental Advocacy Training with DE Audubon & UD Students a huge success!
Delaware Sierra Club Conservation Co-Chair Amy Roe and Delaware Audubon Conservation Chair Dave Carter put on another advocacy training for UD Students and others who wanted to learn more about the skills needed to be successful in environmental advocacy.
Around 50 UD Students from Students for the Environment, UD Fossil Free and other groups joined members of the public and a few experienced advocates at the training which was held at Perkins Student Center. The training covered a range of advocacy approaches, including the basics of message development, community organizing, lobbying & testifying, working with the media and tips for becoming a more effective advocate for environmental issues.
The shirts you see in the above picture were given out at the training and feature a picture of a power plant with a line through it on the front and the words "UD Students and Alumni Against the Power Plant". During the lunch break and after the training students got some first hand experience with direct action as they went outside in their shirts and greeted some prospective UD students who were touring campus.

and DE Audubon Facebook pages.
