Third Coast Regional Conference Citizens’ Climate Lobby
February 9 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm$25
The Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) will host its sixth annual Third Coast Regional
Conference for its Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi volunteers on February 9, 2019,
in Houston,Texas. With the theme “Uniting for Climate Solutions,” the conference is
open to anyone who wants to move our country towards solving climate change.
This Conference follows a major breakthrough for CCL with the introduction of the
Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act in late 2018.The bill was the result of
years of work by CCL volunteers across the country and stands as the first national
,bipartisan-cosponsored carbon pricing bill in nearly a decade.
Conference attendees will explore strategies for transforming political divisions into
solidarity, be trained in how to engage Congress effectively,and receive expert
instruction about carbon reduction solutions and the impacts of climate change on
the Gulf Coast’s economy.
Featured speakers include Sam Daley-Harris, author of “Reclaiming Our Democracy:
Healing the Break Between People and Government” and Mark Reynolds, Executive
Director of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, as well as other energy and carbon pricing leaders.
Attendees receive a bonus invitation to a screening of The Human Element the Friday
evening before the conference, which is being presented in partnership with EarthxFilm.
Acclaimed photographer James Balog,who is featured in the film,will provide a Q&A after
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit,non-partisan advocacy organization focused on
a national, legislative solution to climate change. We work across the political spectrum
to find common ground on climate change solutions.
