As communicators, how can we persuade voters on the urgency of climate change — especially as we head into a major election year? What would another four years of a Trump presidency mean for the environment?

On Nov. 23, we interviewed Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, to discuss the importance of making climate change a front-and-center issue for the 2020 race. The event was hosted at the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs where students, academics, policymakers, journalists, and more gathered to learn about recent trends in voter behavior across the nation, how young voters could influence the 2020 election, and why voter turnout during this coming year will be so pivotal to address the climate crisis.

Check out our conversation with Tanden, below, and learn how the Center for American Progress is helping to persuade voters on the urgency of climate change.
