NorCal Conference Breaks Attendance Record
Youth was well represented with 105 students and people under 25. Of those, 64 were high schoolers. The conference offered a special Climate Advocate Training Workshop just for young people as well as a breakout for youth. A raffle was held to award a free trip to D.C. for one of the young attendees.

Sam Daley-Harris, founder of RESULTS and Civic Courage, led a plenary about bringing bipartisanship and transformation to citizen activism. The Youth Plenary Panel with Adrian Rafizadeh and Alejandra Salazar was another highlight.
