In the absence of federal legislation or a national will to put a price on carbon, the federal government is unlikely to make progress on climate action over the next four years. Recognizing that we can’t afford to wait that long, activists in some states are taking the reins by working to implement policies that address climate change while reducing economic inequality. We’ll hear from advocates working in Oregon and New York, building diverse coalitions to set aggressive targets for renewable energy, price carbon, and reinvest in low-income communities—and learn how philanthropy can support these efforts.
- How states are stepping up to make progress on climate change as the feds step back
- How putting a price on carbon can further climate goals while supporting low-income communities
- The opportunities—and barriers—to climate progress and pricing carbon at the state level
- The types of climate advocacy that are allowable for foundation support
- Andrea Durbin, Executive Director, Oregon Environmental Council
- Stephan Edel, Policy Director, New York Working Families
- Jose Lopez, Director, Community Organizing, Make the Road New York
- Thomas Wheatley, Campaign Consultant, Renew Oregon
- Christy Loper (Moderator), Program Officer, The Educational Foundation of America
All interested funders.
