350 Contra Costa Presents: “Climate Stakes in the 2020 Election”
Sunday, August 9 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
About this Event
The Paris Climate Agreement. Green New Deal. Fracking in California. Oil drilling and refining in Contra Costa County. These are just a few of the critical climate issues at stake in the November 3rd election.Will this election be the tipping point for politicians and policies to urgently address the climate crisis? And what role will COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter play?
For an experts view, 350 Contra Costa invites you to a special webinar, “Climate Stakes in the 2020 Election,” with guest speaker RL Miller, co-founder and political director of Climate Hawks Vote, a federal Super PAC that identifies, trains and supports candidates and elected officials who commit to fierce climate action in Congress—“climate hawks” if you will. As chair of the California Democratic Party’s environmental caucus, RL brings both a state and national perspective to climate issues.
Please join us for this special opportunity to hear from a climate activist who proudly notes on her Twitter account that ex-California Gov. Jerry Brown once dubbed her a “political terrorist.” Laughs RL, “I apparently have a reputation for being…a pain in the ass.”
