The People’s Guide to Environmental Action in Missouri is a multi-media project of Missouri Coalition for the Environment with the goal of empowering community members to become more engaged in local environmental policies.
The People’s Guide to Environmental Action in Missouri will be a resource for concerned community members on the specifics of how and why to advocate for environmental issues in the state of Missouri. The guide will be a strategic combination of online, printed, and in-person resources that will be rolled out over the next year online and in the St. Louis region.
This summer, MCE is introducing the The People’s Pocket Guide to Environmental Action, a pocket-sized booklet that is an abridged version of the forthcoming full guide.
This brief guide is an overview of advocacy tactics to provide community members with a baseline understanding of how and why advocacy works while including summaries of certain actions, such as filing a public comment, and how these actions can be effective for resolving concerns. The guide also touches on grassroots organizing and how to build momentum within a community around an issue.
