The Push for a Price on Carbon: CCL’s June 2021 Virtual Conference. Register here.
The Olympia Chapter of CCL will be attending the national CCL conference and preparing to meet with Representative Strickland’s team. Sign up for the conference here: https://community.citizensclimate.org/events/item/23/5743!
As we make the big push to include carbon pricing in climate legislation that moves forward in this Congress, CCL’s June 12 conference is designed to help you be an effective advocate for this powerful tool, which can put us on track to reach net zero emissions by 2050.
In addition to the stellar lineup of keynote speakers — Jerry Taylor, Jasmine Sanders and Adele Morris — our breakout sessions feature a wide range of people and organizations who will talk about why they support carbon pricing. You can choose to hear from faith groups, mayors, doctors, students, outdoorsmen, labor unions or environmental justice advocates.
The conference also includes the option to attend one of four Sunday seminars. Two of these sessions are new this year: Energy Innovation Act: Messaging and Policy Details, and Understanding the Conservative Perspective—Critical to Achieve the Mission.
Something else that’s new this year: “We’re using Airmeet as our conference platform this June,” said Alison Kubicsko, CCL’s National Events Manager. “It has more opportunity for attendees to connect to each other, and it will allow for much easier transitions between conference sessions.”
Join Alison and CCL’s Amy Bennett for a Q&A on Tuesday, June 21 to learn more about what you can expect at the virtual June conference and procedures for lobbying the week following the conference.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization, laser focused on a specific piece of legislation and a proven strategy to gain its passage. We are working for the passage of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, the climate change solution economists and climate scientists alike say is the “best first-step” to preventing the worst impacts of a warming world.
The Olympia Chapter meets the 2nd Saturday of each month (except June 12, to attend the conference). At each meeting, we listen to a national video-conference on our own, and then meet via zoom to discuss the teleconference, the activities of our Action Teams, and news from local climate action groups.
