Please join us as we kick off our first of four virtual sessions this fall and winter. Session I will focus on Tribal climate policy and climate change implications for Tribes, First Nations, and Indigenous communities. Tribal policy experts will also present a Tribal analysis and discussion on the key pillars of the recently released action plan from the House Select Committee on Climate Crisis “Solving the Climate Crisis: The Congressional Action Plan for a Clean Energy Economy and a Healthy, Resilient, and Just America.” The Summit and virtual sessions’ goal is to formulate and advance a proactive, tribally-led national climate policy agenda.
