Back to the Table

At last, CCL tablers can get out in public and promote the fight against climate change in person! What is tabling?  It's simply setting up and staffing an attractive interactive booth at events like farmers’ markets and expositions and engaging with folks to learn about climate change and solutions like the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. We pass out information, attract kids with activities, chat, provide sign-ups and petitions. It’s a great way to get started as a CCL volunteer. Join the fun! Contact Linda Cohan for more information.

The
Tacoma Ocean Fest took place on June 6.  The next planned event so far is the Steilacoom Drive Electric Event on September 11 from 11am - 3pm.  There may be more as the summer progresses!
