The New Republic Hosts “The Frontier of Climate Change: State and Local Action in New England”


Washington, D.C.—State and local politicians, especially those whose communities have suffered from the recent spike in extreme weather events, have been far quicker than Congress to embrace and implement meaningful climate change policies. Are these case studies and pockets of success enough to achieve broad-scale climate action in the coming years? What will it take to bring climate change to the forefront of policy debates? Will future candidates for public office shy away from climate policy, or will it become a key issue in upcoming elections?

On May 6, The New Republic and The League of Women Voters will host "The Frontier of Climate Change" to address the current state of climate policy and the political future of climate change in the United States.
