Description

Welcome to the 2020 Citizens' Climate Education Southeast Regional Conference

Saturday 3/28, 8:30 a.m. to Sunday 3/29, 12:30pm


You are invited to the annual Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) and Citizens Climate Education (CCE) Southeast Climate Conference! CCL and CCE provides education about the climate crisis that helps to build political will for our elected representatives to take effective action on climate change. Optimism and volunteer support has allowed us to achieve the impossible, including the introduction of bipartisan climate legislation in both the US House and US Senate in late 2018.

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

Sponsored by Kroger's Zero Hunger/Zero Waste initiative.
