Educating the Electorate: Become an Energy Spokesperson!
Overview: The purpose of this project is to bring energy issues up with candidates for state legislature, educate them, and highlight what Missouri needs to be a leader in renewable energy and energy efficiency. And we think, you, the people, are the best people to deliver that message. There are many ways to do that and we've got a lot of options for you to be... an Energy Spokesperson.
What's an Energy Spokesperson?
It's what we call our volunteers that attend candidate events, write letters, give phone calls, interact on social media -- or however they want to interact -- with the aim of educating our future decision makers on the energy issues that matter.
