About this Event

Building a Big Tent for Climate Action

To protect the people and places they love, climate advocates are working to build a "big tent" coalition that can move climate legislation through Congress. But this task has become extremely difficult, as Americans increasingly feel politically, socially, and physically divided from each other.

During these difficult times, how can climate advocates continue stretching this "tent" and rally Americans of all backgrounds around climate action? Join Citizens' Climate Virginia for our 2020 Virtual Conference to tackle this question.

The conference will feature four 45-minute sessions that focus on practical ways to do outreach and build relationships, with the goal of making the climate movement a bigger and more diverse coalition.

The sessions will be conducted virtually in two Zoom rooms. Please RSVP to receive the Zoom information and instructions for joining each session.
