Event description


Welcome to the Citizens’ Climate Lobby 2019 Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference

Friday, January 25, 3pm - Sunday, January 27, 12:00pm

You are invited to the annual Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference! CCL builds the political will for our elected representatives to take action on climate change.

Gambling with climate risk: Bipartisan challenges and opportunities. We have been gambling with climate risk and have begun to see the challenges of the risk we have taken. Come and learn about opportunities as well – opportunities to work together to heal our communities and our climate.

Our Regional Conference is an opportunity for newcomers and experienced CCL members to gather to learn, network, practice skills, inspire each other, and strategize in moving our country toward climate solutions.

Rising temperatures, prolonged wildfire seasons, drought, flooding, and insect infestations are already impacting our communities, agriculture and outdoor recreation industries. The harm of inaction and the benefit of action have never been higher.

For more information, contact Sabrina Fu: sabrina.fu@citizensclimatelobby.org
