Five members of LWV Lake Michigan Region are traveling to Washington DC to tell Congress that League members support the Great Lakes and that funding is critical. Help get the message across by calling your Representative and Senators on March 14, 15, or 16 and tell them that the Great Lakes are important to you.
Tell them to stand strong for the lakes and support:
