You are invited to the 7th annual Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) Third Coast Regional Conference!

CCL builds the political will for our elected representatives to act on climate change. With the reintroduction into Congress of The Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act, an effective bipartisan climate bill, that political will is more important than ever!

Our Regional Conference is an opportunity for newcomers and experienced CCL members to stand united – to learn, practice skills, inspire each other, and strategize for building the political will to move our country toward fair and economically sound climate solutions.

The Third Coast Region – Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas – is large and diverse, but we are united in our concerns. Climate impacts are already manifesting along our coast, on our ranches and farms, and in our cities. Rising temperatures, hurricanes and massive rain events, drought and prolonged wildfire seasons are hurting our communities, agriculture, and industries. Both the harm of inaction and the potential for this region to lead in a low-emission economy have never been greater.

Please join us in Houston on February 8 to help forge a climate solution that will benefit all Third Coast residents.

Tickets includes the conference, lunch and coffee breaks.
