Event description


Welcome to the 2019 Citizens’ Climate Lobby NorCal Regional Conference

Saturday, January 26th 8am - Sunday, January 27th 1pm

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

Our Regional Conference is an opportunity for newcomers and experienced CCL members to gather to learn, 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 Tasha Reddy ca@citizensclimate.org.

What you need to know about the 2019 NorCal Regional Conference:


Everyone is welcome, whether it’s your first CCL experience or you’re an experienced volunteer. You are welcome no matter where you're from.
