PCL’s 2018 Environmental Legislative Assembly
New Strategies for Chaotic Times

Saturday, February 24, 2018

8:30 am to 4:30 pm with reception to follow


Each year PCL focuses on policy topics that are relevant and current in the California legislative process. We are planning to do so again this year with several important policy sessions as well as legal environmental issues and current court cases to watch.

Given the strong interest from last year’s assembly on diversity and the shared values we all work so hard to protect and promote across California, we will be adding a topic track devoted entirely to the intersectionality of our shared values and organizational collaboration and co-advocacy strategies.

Additionally, we will add a youth advocacy and organizational training workshop for our younger millennials to learn about policy and legislative work, as well as encourage them to build a career in the field and develop the job skills to do so.  Empowering the younger generations to continue the work ahead is critical to all of us.

Join the Planning and Conservation League on February 24, 2018 at McGeorge School of Law for our Annual Environmental Legislative Assembly. Tickets go on sale starting October 2, 2017.
