April Monthly Meeting W/ Nathaniel Stinnett, Environmental Voter Project
Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. April's monthly meeting event (April 11th at 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT) featured Nathaniel Stinnett, executive director of the Environmental Voter Project.

Step one to generate political will for climate solutions is to get people who care about the environment to vote. When Nathaniel Stinnett found out that environmentalists, by and large, were staying home on election day, he saw a problem in need of a solution. That's why in 2015 he launched the Environmental Voter Project which identifies environmentalists who don't vote and reaches out to get them to the polls. On this month's call, Nathaniel will share some of the ways his organization has successfully activated this important bloc of voters.
