President and Founder of the Hip Hop Caucus
Join us to hear from our guest speaker, Reverend Lennox Yearwood, Jr., President and Founder of the Hip Hop Caucus. As a national leader within the Green Movement, Rev. Yearwood works to bridge the gap between communities of color and environmental advocacy. He is a leader in campaigns calling for divestment from fossil fuels causing climate change, increasing diversity in the climate movement, ensuring everyone has clean water and air, and international efforts to address climate change. Rev. Yearwood is a board member of the League of Conservation Voters and we are excited to welcome him back to the (virtual) Breakfast stage after he joined us in 2015. We look forward to hearing what Rev. Yearwood has to say about the intersection between climate justice, racial justice, voting, and an open and fair democracy!

Washington State Governor
A fifth-generation Washingtonian, Governor Jay Inslee grew up in the Seattle area and entered public service in Yakima in 1985. He went on to become a state representative and was elected to Congress in 1993. In 2012, Jay was elected Washington’s 23rd governor. Through two terms as governor, Jay’s focus has been on building a brighter future for every Washingtonian. Jay has firmly established the state of Washington as the national leader in fighting climate change. He created the Clean Energy Fund, a model for economic development aligned with climate change goals, creating hundreds of jobs and setting unprecedented emissions standards, making Washington state the standard-bearer for the nation.

Washington State Representative (D-48), WCV's 2020 Legislator of the Year
Representative Vandana Slatter (D-48) is Washington Conservation Voters 2020 Legislator of the Year. Rep. Slatter led a multi-year effort to pass HB 2311, Climate Pollution Limits, updating Washington state’s goals for reducing climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions to bring them in line with current science and include the role of sequestration in our state’s climate policy. This policy puts the State of Washington on a trajectory to pass future carbon reducing laws to meet those aggressive limits.
