About this event

Join us on December 13th for our last All-In call of 2023!  We’ll have Senator Bernie Sanders on the line with us to talk about the moment we’re in to end the era of fossil fuels, and what we should learn from similar moments in the past. We will take a look at how much we’ve been able to accomplish together, and will be previewing the big and new work we’re lining up for 2024.
