Building Inclusive and Effective Climate Coalitions
August 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The climate crisis, and the myriad policy solutions required to tackle its massively diverse impacts, are too large of issues for one organization to tackle on its own. As with the most successful organizing, passing such policies requires building coalitions and working together towards common goals.
In this webinar, we will explore how to effectively build inclusive subnational coalitions that can push for racial and climate justice through ambitious climate policy.
Joining us are the three climate advocates who have helped lead inclusive, successful climate coalitions at the state and municipal level. Shilpa Joshi, the Coalition Director for Renew Oregon, who successfully convened hundreds of progressive organizations who have rallied for strong climate action. Camila Thorndike, the co-founder of Our Climate, who spearheaded the campaign to pass the 2018 Clean Energy DC Omnibus Act. Maritza Silva-Farrell, the Executive Director of ALIGN: The Alliance for a Greater New York, who was instrumental in the passage of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act in 2019.
All three speakers bring unique perspectives, but have one thing in common: they’ve successfully led diverse coalitions for strong climate action in their jurisdictions.
