On Tuesday, October 13, 2020, the League of Women Voters of Dane County (LWVDC) will present a Virtual Public Issues Forum titled, Check Your Ballot for Climate. Learn how voters are influenced by their global climate crisis concerns, how they evaluate candidates in relation to their environmental positions and what climate and environmental activists are doing locally to ‘get out the vote.’
will join Jennifer Giegerich, Government Affairs Director for Wisconsin
Conservation Voters and moderator and LWVDC member Carol Barford,
Director of the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment
(SAGE) at UW-Madison in this constructive exploration of voting as it
relates to the climate crisis.
“Climate change is affecting every aspect of our lives," says Giegerich, "and voters have a great opportunity to learn about the policies that decision-makers will be considering at the local, state, and federal levels to address this critical issue.”
Check Your Ballot for Climate is designed to help voters concerned about climate issues, eco- anxiety and the upcoming election find answers. Virtual attendees will be encouraged to pose their own questions to our featured speakers during the event. The program begins at 7:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
