Time to Lead on Climate

Peoples Climate MarchGovernment and media leaders have lagged behind the most significant crisis of our generation: Climate Change. 2015 will conclude with another United Nations Climate Summit, as polar ice caps continue to melt. 2016 includes the election of a new President and Congress from a field pocketed with climate change deniers and agnostics. Meanwhile, California is providing a model for global climate leadership and a greening economy. And millions worldwide are taking to the streets.

How do we accomplish the political change needed to confront Climate Change—and what can you do to help?

Join us to hear leaders from the State and Federal government and the environmental movement discuss in panel discussion format, where we're headed.

Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, will speak via video with a special message for the audience of this event.
