POLICY AND ADVOCACY
The Policy and Advocacy committee monitors and discusses public policy issues and strategic advocacy opportunities for the environmental sustainability and economic vitality of Arizona. The committee recommends policy positions, responds to requests for support on issues, promotes member engagement in policy, and leads AZF’s work to advance sustainability in policy and legislation. The committee meets on the first Thursday of every month.
Arizona Forward was founded as Valley Forward in 1969, one year before the first Earth Day. We expanded statewide in 2013.
We mobilize business leaders and policymakers to leverage their collective power to influence how we best grow our communities, stimulate our economy and enhance our environment.
Our diverse membership of large corporations and small businesses, along with municipal, county and state agencies, educational institutions, related nonprofits and concerned citizens help ensure: smart growth and development, efficient transportation, improved air quality, responsible water management, energy alternatives and meaningful education.
