Clean Energy Jobs: Take action Feb. 12

Climate change continues.

We’ve endured hot summers and threats of wildfires not far from our doorsteps in 2017. Let’s let our legislators know during this upcoming session they have the power to lead the nation with innovative programs that will mitigate rising temperatures and extreme weather patterns.

So come join us for the Clean Energy Jobs Lobby Day and rally! We’ll help coordinate carpools. We’ll provide lunch, and share tips on meeting with your legislator. Click here for more information and to register.
