Event description
Citizens' Climate Lobby Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference: 20-20 Vision: Clarifying Our Regional Climate Strategy

About this Event

Sharpen your focus on the strategies and partnerships that will be needed to build support for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act in 2020! Our goal is to inspire, inform, connect, and collaborate across state and district boundaries and with other organizations in our region who are concerned about the urgent need for climate action. Working together, we will find powerful lenses to help our Mid-Atlantic members of Congress clearly see how our climate solution will benefit their constituents. Through the arts, we’ll also envision our shared natural heritage and our common future together.

The conference center and hotel are easily accessible by car or train. The riverfront area is located just off of Interstate 95 near downtown Wilmington, and ample free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the Chase Center.

The Chase Center is located about a mile from the Wilmington train station, which receives both Amtrak northeast corridor and SEPTA regional commuter trains. You can reach the Chase Center/Westin Hotel from the train station via a 20-minute walk or 7-minute taxi, Uber or Lyft ride. A Greyhound bus station is also located just a block farther from the train station.
