November Monthly Actions & Meeting W/ Tia Nelson, Outrider Foundation

Average Rating:
Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. November's monthly meeting will take place on November 14th and feature Tia Nelson, Managing Director of Outrider Foundation.

d9f31b15b4040cc341da27feb1b1acca-huge-snAt the age of 13, Tia Nelson spent the first Earth Day cleaning up trash with her junior high classmates. She went on to follow in the environmental footsteps of her father, Sen. Gaylord Nelson, founder of Earth Day, the historic event that ushered in a new era of awareness and action for our environment. Now the Managing Director for the Outrider Foundation, which works to end the threat of nuclear war and reverse the course of global climate change, Tia joins this month's call in the aftermath of a momentous election. She'll share the lessons she learned from her father and offer perspective on the state of the climate movement based on her many years of working on that issue.
