September 26 Webinar – A Conversation Between Chapters: State Level Climate Action

A Conversation Between Chapters: State Level Climate Action

Tuesday, September 26, 2023 | Virtual | 4:30 – 5:30PM ET

The extended summer heat emergencies in many parts of the US this year and the visible consequences of wildfires across the country have left the impact of climate change and its implications for the future of children at front of mind. Even after the summer heat fades and the atmospheric haze dissipates, the daily impacts of climate change won’t go away, and sustained advocacy is needed to ensure a better future for children and adolescents and the planet that they will inherit. Actions at the state level are making a difference in mitigating the impact and extent of climate change—in state legislatures, in the courts, and in outreach to the public at large, and pediatricians organized at the state level have a role to play in this advocacy.

Join the AAP State Advocacy team for the next installment of our webinar series focusing on climate change advocacy efforts at the state level. Learn from AAP members active in their states on their successful engagements on these issues and get connected with evidence-based policy guidance from AAP and additional resources.
