Water Advocacy Update and How to Virtually Lobby Congress

Complimentary Webinar – Wednesday, April 22, 2:00 – 3:30 PM

As Congress works on addressing the health and economic impacts of coronavirus – a national crisis that has put the importance of sanitation and the efforts of water utility workers at the forefront – it is more important than ever for water professionals to engage with Congress. Join the National Water Policy Fly-In Partners – NACWA, WEF, WateReuse and The Water Research Foundation to hear the latest update on our Congressional advocacy and learn how to engage during Water Week. It will be critical for the water sector around the country to advocate for support for communities, utilities, and businesses in future coronavirus recovery packages. We also must make our voices heard on the other important policy and funding issues Congress will address this year, including PFAS, CWSRF reauthorization, and the next Water Resources Development Act.

Participants will hear the latest from Capitol Hill, the water sector’s key issues and talking points, and tools and tips for engaging during Water Week – such as setting up virtual congressional office visits and messaging resources for social media and community outreach during Water Week and beyond.
