The CCL Mid-Atlantic Region started its 20-20 Vision Conference with a keynote (video link) from Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) and 241 attendees at the Chase Center in Wilmington, DE. The array of speakers included Tykee James of Audubon, Mike Tidwell of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, Delaware Republican state legislator Anthony Delcollo and Pennsylvania Delegate Chris Rabb. 

We also infused arts throughout our conference. Several volunteers who've had successes with grassroots outreach, grasstops engagement and other areas shared their skills with attendees during a "speed dating" session where they went from table to table. 

Our conference opened after an evening memorial for Marshall Saunders, and we felt his presence throughout the conference as we committed to continuing the important work he started.

In the face of COVID-19, it no longer seems possible nor prudent to plan for our usual in-person conference and lobby day in June.
