Through ASLA’s Advocacy efforts, Landscape Architects help to shape public policy on both National and Local levels. ASLA maintains a continued presence on Capitol Hill, bringing relevant issues to the table on a daily basis. By participating in Advocacy efforts, members of ASLA can make connections with National, State and District lawmakers to advance agendas that are important to their chapter, moving legislation forward and creating public awareness.

Each year, ASLA advocates travel from across the country to Washington, DC to advocate for policy issues important to the landscape architecture profession. During their congressional visits, landscape architects strive to raise the visibility of the profession with legislators and key staff, and educate them on the many ways that landscape architects provide solutions to a myriad of problems facing our nation.
