They help inform citizens about environmental legislation in the Statehouse; they spread their knowledge and passion through tabling events and attending meetings; they perform outreach via phone and social media; and more!

Some of the tasks an EA may be assigned include:

  • Table at Events
  • Phone Bank
  • Attend Town Hall (Third House) Meetings
  • Visit Legislators
  • Organize/Attend House Parties (“GYCs”)
  • And More!
