California Stories: Grounded Perspectives on Climate Policies and Actions

September 12, 2018 - 3:00 pm

Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, 1 Market Street, Spear Tower, Suite 1900
San Francisco, California
Leaders around the world are gathering in San Francisco to discuss goals for fighting climate change at the Global Climate Action Summit. This global effort, however, cannot succeed without effective action locally – meaning policy makers must make these issues resonate with their communities in meaningful ways.  
 
How do we make the abstract, 50,000-foot level global discussion on climate more immediate to people at home? What lessons can we offer to the rest of the country and the world? This is not just a messaging strategy, but a way to ensure that our policies are beneficial, and, most critically, equitable for all communities.

Please join the Atlantic Council and the California State Assembly in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 12 from 3:00 - 5:30 p.m. for a wide-ranging discussion highlighting California state legislators’ uniquely local stories and how each of them has brought diverse constituencies on board with climate action.
