Why Sign-On As A Partner
By working collectively with other organizations, your efforts are leveraged
with theirs for maximum impact and effectiveness. As a result, your
organization's voice will ring more loudly in the ears of decision makers on
Capitol Hill - a reality that only increases all our chances for success. What?s
more, your successes will be those of the entire field?not just one
- CEL staff carry the load of coordination, monitoring progress and activity on
the Hill, providing expert information and political strategy, and drafting
letters, thus minimizing the impact of campaign work on your organization and
its staff. We will invite your organization to take an active role in specific
initiatives as you feel are appropriate. Such activities can be as quick and
easy as adding your organization?s name to the bottom of a letter to Congress or
sending CEL action alerts to your listserv, or as involved as contacting members
of Congress in order to educate them on funding issues important to the field
and participating in strategy sessions.
- You can easily keep your members updated and involved in advocacy work by
sending them to our ?action center? website page.
- Your organization will gain visibility as a supporter of national advocacy and
education work with the public in general and the environmental/sustainability
education communities in particular.
CEL?s success to date in restoring $14 million of funding has clearly shown that
the environmental/sustainability education community can come together and
effectively make its collective voice heard. Adding your voice will help make
your community just that much stronger!
