You are invited to the annual Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) Northern California Regional Conference! CCL builds the political will for our elected representatives to take action on climate change.
Our Regional Conference is an opportunity for newcomers and experienced CCL members to gather to learn, practice skills, inspire each other, and strategize in moving our country toward climate solutions.
Rising temperatures, prolonged wildfire seasons, drought, flooding, and insect infestations are already impacting our communities, agriculture and outdoor recreation industries. The harm of inaction and the benefit of action have never been higher.
For more information, contact Heath Massey (massey.heath [at] gmail.com).
