Following on BCAG’s Climate Solutions 101 video presentations in April and May, this presentation is intended to gather folks wanting to “Find their Voice” to express concern and take positive action in a coordinated and effective way. BCAG intends to establish a working team in this area for ongoing elected official and public information advocacy.
Dave Atkins, a forest ecologist, co-leader of the Missoula Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and Vice President of the Montana Forest Owners Association, will present this event. Topics include:
• Advocacy through Print Media for contacting elected officials and writing letters to the editor, including CCL's guidelines and techniques making the process easier and more effective.
• Connecting with Opposing Views, including how CCL has honed language, tools, and strategies around the evolving climate to build understanding and bipartisan approaches.
• Holding Candidates Accountable, including approaches to promoting voting with climate change in mind and making sure candidates' positions/solutions on climate are clearly understood.
If you’ve been looking to join an activity with direct and important impact on meeting the challenge of climate change, this is it! We’ll see you there.
