Running for Office on Climate

September 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


About Running for Office on Climate – SEPTEMBER 23RD
Exactly 5 months after our launch event, we are coming back to the main stage, this time at Climate Week NYC.

We are going to discuss what climate action means in our cities and communities and what it takes to run for office on climate.

So, what does it take to ‘run on climate’? And what does it mean to lead climate action efforts rooted in principles of justice, equity and inclusion? And how can we as climate champions support one another to take this step to run for office?

Join us for a virtual discussion with three climate champions:

Lauren Kuby, a two-term councilmember and former vice mayor of Tempe, and a long-time advocate for consumer, environmental, and worker protections. She is running for a seat on the Arizona Corporation Commission;
Vernon Walker, an outspoken advocate for social justice and climate action and currently serves as Senior Program Manager at the Communities Responding to Extreme Weather program in Boston Massachusetts; and
Mandy Mahoney, former President of the Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance, and formerly Atlanta’s first Director of Sustainability and now a candidate for the Atlanta City Council DistRict 5.

Plus, we will announce the next Climate Candidates Accelerator, coming October 29-31. Both Lauren, Vernon and Mandy participated in our first Accelerator this past June.
