We have invited incumbents and challengers from all seven U.S. Congressional districts representing Orange County. Each candidate will be given time to share their views. Following the presentation there will be time for questions.

Orange County for Climate Action is hosting this event because, although our focus is local, what happens locally depends also on what legislative action our representatives in Washington choose to take—or not take—regarding global climate change. The event is a golden opportunity to evaluate candidates’ knowledge and hear their ideas on climates.
