Environmental organizations lobbying for climate change legislation realize the public must be energized if the earth is to be preserved. Without support many advocates groups would flounder. Grass roots activists understand they must speak up in order to influence key decision makers. These activists often become dynamic speakers in the process.
Meet the 2016 recipient of the Lois Phillips Founders Award, Becca Claassen, Outreach Consultant on Climate Change. Trained as a chiropractor, she became a full-time advocate when inspired by her daughter. Becca talked to nearly 20,000 voters about Measure P (the anti fracking measure) before Election Day. This young mom’s commitment to Climate Change advocacy has made a huge impact on our community. She is also an organizer for Food & Water Watch. Please join us to get inspired by Becca’s journey, knowledge, and leadership.
