April 25: Celebrate Earth Day with Katharine Hayhoe and CCL

So far, more than 1,500 people have registered to attend “Uniting from Home: A Virtual CCL Event with Katharine Hayhoe” on April 25! At the event, we’ll hear from one of our favorite climate allies, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe. April 25, 10am-1pm PST.
