Lead Locally/Climate Hawks Vote People’s Climate Candidate Training
On April 30th, the day after the People’s Climate March, we’re hosting a training for leaders of the climate movement who are considering running for office!
We need bold progressives to run for office who will lead on climate, and stand in stark contrast to Donald Trump’s climate denial and the fossil-fuel industry agenda.
At the training we'll hear from grassroots leaders who have gotten elected themselves and made major progress by stopping fossil fuel projects, advancing renewable energy, and helping their communities deal with climate disasters. And we'll be joined by some of the top progressive political strategists and trainers in the country.
This training is for you if:
- you are considering running for office yourself in the next one to three years,
- you want to help a friend run for office,
- or you want to learn how a local electoral strategy could help your campaign.
Engaging in local politics is a critical part of the climate movement, whether we're fighting for divestment, no new fossil fuels, or solutions like community solar and green building policies.
