February 8 Guest Speaker
Bob Inglis, Executive Director of republicEn.org
Our February guest, Bob Inglis, is no stranger to Citizens’ Climate Lobby. A member of CCL’s advisory board and the governing board of Citizens’ Climate Education, Bob served as a Republican Congressman from South Carolina from 1993 to 1999 and again from 2005 to 2011. During his tenure, Bob introduced the Raise Wages, Cut Carbon Act — a revenue-neutral carbon tax. After leaving Congress, he started republicEn.org, an organization devoted to persuading conservatives to address climate change with market-based solutions. Bob has been a featured speaker at CCL national and regional conferences, coaching volunteers on how to effectively engage conservatives on climate change.
January 11 Guest Speaker
John Wood Jr., Better Angels
With impeachment and the election year ahead of us deepening the partisan divide in America, we hear this month from John Wood Jr. from Better Angels, a national citizens’ movement “to reduce political polarization in the United States by bringing liberals and conservatives together to understand each other beyond stereotypes.”
Wood is a national leader for Better Angels, a former nominee for Congress, former Vice-Chairman of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County, and author of the upcoming book, “Transcending Politics: Perspectives for a Divided Nation.”
