About this Event

Kick off 2021 with "Bridges to Coalition", our 2021 virtual conference to help set the stage for effective climate legislation this year. We will start off with a panel discussion from diverse voices on what it means to build bridges to coalition. That theme of building bridges to coalition will be echoed throughout the conference with workshops and panel discussions and talks on how we can all be part of the solutions needed to form bridges between diverse coalitions.

Please RSVP to obtain the Zoom meeting information. Emails with the Zoom information will be sent to those who have registered on the Friday before the conference.

You can see the full schedule on our Conference Website.
