Climate Ambition with Gina McCarthy, Annie Leonard and Tamara Toles O’Laughlin

Tuesday, September 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

| Free

How are the leaders of some of the nations’ biggest environmental organizations responding to a year of race and health crises?

Environmental groups like NRDC, 350.org, and Greenpeace helped move climate onto the presidential agenda last year, pushing Joe Biden and other Democrats’ stance on bold action. Now, organizers and advocates are backing recovery plans that bolster clean energy jobs, help strengthen communities, and dismantle systems that exploit people and the planet. How enthusiastic are they about Joe Biden’s $2 trillion climate plan?

Can activism finally bring America’s political ambitions in line with climate science? Join us for a conversation on the state of our climate with Annie Leonard, executive director of Greenpeace, Gina McCarthy, CEO of the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC), and Tamara Toles O’Laughlin, North America director of 350.org.
