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.
