Presented by Premiere Sponsor Infrastructure Solution Services and Associate Sponsor NextEra Energy Resources:

What happened during the 2018 elections nationally and in PA? How will it impact environmental policymaking and what should we expect in the coming years? 

The last two years have ushered in historic attacks on environmental laws. For many voters across the state, the political threats against our basic rights to clean air, pure water, stable climate, and the preservation of natural lands, have become a clarion call for changes in the capitol buildings in Harrisburg and Washington, D.C. For many of the folks running for office, challenging the threats against the environment are about defending our families, our children, and the health and safety of our communities. Please join PennFuture and Conservation Voters of Pennsylvania for the evening to discuss the results of the November 6th elections and what it means for environmental protection and climate action. 

When: Thursday, Nov. 15, 5:15 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. 

Where: University of the Arts Caplan Studio Theater for the Performing Arts - 17th Floor, 211 S. Broad St.
Philadelphia, PA 19107

Who: Panelists to be announced soon! Stay tuned. 

Hear from state and national policymakers from both sides of the aisle leading the fight for environmental protection and the elected officials bringing fresh perspectives on how we can defend against rollbacks and advance new legislation in the future. 

Will President Trump’s anti-environmental agenda be checked by a new Congress? What kind of progress can be made on fundamental issues like clean water and climate change? Will Pennsylvania be able to make progress on clean energy in a state known more for providing the red-carpet treatment to natural gas drillers? 

Space is limited - register early to guarantee a seat! Tickets are $25 per person, and $10 for students. Complimentary beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres will be available.
