Calling on Congress
An economy-wide carbon price is the single most powerful tool we have to reduce America’s carbon pollution to net zero by 2050. We’re asking Congress to enact that powerful tool this year. You’ll get updates on what’s happening in Washington, D.C., from keynote speaker Adele Morris, economist at the Brookings Institution, and CCL’s government affairs team.
It Takes a Coalition
Keynote speakers Jasmine Sanders, Executive Director of Our Climate, and Jerry Taylor, President of Niskanen Center, will share what their organizations are doing this year in support of climate solutions. At our breakout sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from faith groups, local leaders, businesses and more about their perspectives on the push for a price on carbon.
Grassroots action is at the heart of the push for a price on carbon. Citizens’ Climate grassroots supporters span the United States and its diverse climates and interests. Together, we’ll double down on the push for a price. You’ll be trained on actions you can take in your community, with the media, and with your member of Congress.
