RE: Climate on the Ballot Roundtable with 350's Co-founder Bill McKibben, others

Dear Adrianne,

Climate is on the ballot this year. The power and importance of climate voters is enormous.

The Council is pushing for the bold climate policy we need. This means putting Joe Biden in the White House and electing climate champions across the country. And then continuing to organize and amplify the voices of climate and environmental justice activists.

The Council’s fifth Roundtable, “Climate on the Ballot,” will engage with these challenges. Join an exciting group of climate leaders next Wednesday, September 30th at 7pm ET for an important conversation, breathtaking poetry from one of the nation’s leading eco-poets, Council updates — and calls to action.

RSVP & SUBMIT QUESTIONS FOR THE SPEAKERS

I’ll be joined by:

  • Bill McKibben, Co-founder of 350.org, Professor at Middlebury College, and author of over a dozen books on the environment

  • Charlie Jiang, Climate Campaigner, Greenpeace USA

  • Justin Onwenu, DNC Climate Council Platform Committee member and a Detroit-based climate organizer

  • Ada Limón, Poet and Author of five books of poetry including The Carrying, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award

Together, we can tackle the climate crisis — if we elect leaders who make bold, science-based choices and put into place policies to end the fossil fuel age, ensure a just transition for workers and communities, create millions of good union jobs, and center environmental justice.

We’ll be streaming live on Facebook and on YouTube. RSVP to receive streaming links on the day of the event. We hope you can join us.

In Solidarity,


Michelle Deatrick

Chair, DNC Environment and Climate Council
