Tom Steyer Talks Climate
Sep 7 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Registration for this event ended at 2 pm on Sept 7. There were still a few dozen seats available at that time. We will accept walk-in registrations at the event until the Cathedral is full. Seats will be held for people who registered in advance until 6:15 pm. Thanks in advance for your patience!

Tom Steyer will join us to talk about current issues in climate change politics and NextGen America's work to prevent climate disaster, promote prosperity, and protect the rights of every American.

There will be an extensive Q&A during which Tom will discuss the climate movement, the politics of climate, and how Californians can take effective action.

San Diego Council Member Barbara Bry (District 1) will also talk about implementing a Community Choice Energy program in San Diego in order to meet our goal of 100% clean energy, and how San Diegans can help make it happen. Barbara is a former journalist and high-tech entrepreneur who was on the founding team of several local high-tech companies. 

Council Member Chris Ward (District 3) will introduce Tom Steyer. 

RSVP NOW to join us this exciting evening with climate leader Tom Steyer. And join and share our Facebook event!

Tom is a business leader and philanthropist who believes we have a moral responsibility to give back and help ensure every family shares the benefits of economic opportunity, education, and a healthy climate. He serves as President of NextGen America, an organization he founded as NextGen Climate in 2013 to prevent climate disaster and promote prosperity for all Americans.

“[In 2012] Steyer and environmental activist and author Bill McKibben spent a day trudging through the Adirondacks. Not long after, Steyer parted ways with the leadership of his company and his oil and gas investments, began to fight the Keystone XL pipeline, and then reinvented himself as a one-man superfund for climate causes.”  – Wired
