Though the in-person National Water Policy Fly-In was canceled, please join WateReuse, NACWA, WEF, and WRF for this online offering to supercharge your virtual lobbying.
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. Hear the latest update on 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 out of Congress, as well as engage 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.
