Oregon's Legislative Session: Carbon Reductions on the Agenda 

Friday, January 18, 2019

White Stag Block, 70 NW Couch St. Portland, Oregon 

To avoid the worst impacts of climate change, the planet has to substantially reduce its carbon pollution. In the 2019 Legislative Session, Oregon will consider doing its part. The state legislature will take up legislation to reduce the state's emissions of carbon pollution and join California and Quebec in the Western Climate Initiative. Please join us as we explore this issue with key policymakers and experts. Begins at 8:30 a.m. with coffee and ends with a networking lunch.
