Climate Action on the Inside: Engaging Representatives on a Green New Deal
October 17, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The climate crisis is upon us, and we must act fast. As activist groups push politicians to realize the urgency of the crisis, some elected officials are already hard at work on implementing a local Green New Deal inside city halls and the State House.
Join ClimateXChange and Cambridge City Councilor Quinton Zondervan, State Rep. Nika Elugardo, and State Rep. Mike Connolly for a discussion on their work to implement a Green New Deal at the state and local levels. The panel will be moderated by ClimateXChange Executive Director Michael Green and will focus on the challenges and opportunities the elected officials face in implementing the just transition we need to tackle this crisis. The panel will be followed by a discussion on how to grow partnerships between citizens and politicians trying to build towards a Green New Deal. Join us for this important opportunity to engage directly with your representatives on a local and state level Green New Deal!
