LWV Upper Mississippi River Region Inter League Organization 2019 Annual Meeting

On Saturday, June 1, the LWV Upper Mississippi River Region Inter League Organization held its annual meeting which included presentations regarding climate change from John Linc Stine, Executive Director of the Freshwater Society, and Matt Gladue, Program Director, Our Mississippi Our Future, the Nature Conservancy. We heard from U.S. Representative Angie Craig about her work in the House, particularly on the Local Water Protection Act, HR 1331. We also heard from Caryl Terrell of LWV of Dane County (Madison, WI) regarding LWVUS's Climate Change Task Force and Toolkit for Climate Action. The toolkit discusses in depth what state and local leagues can do to help promote solutions to climate change.

LWVUS's position on climate change states, in part, that "climate change is a serious threat facing our nation and our planet. The League believes that an interrelated approach to combating climate change—including through energy conservation, air pollution controls, building resilience, and promotion of renewable resources—is necessary to protect public health and defend the overall integrity of the global ecosystem."
