Each fall, ecoAmerica hosts our marquee event, the American Climate Leadership Summit. The summit is the nation’s largest gathering of leaders to broaden and activate climate leadership and galvanize support for solutions.  This year’s theme, Taking Up the Mantle, expects to draw over 350 leaders from the health, faith, and local communities sectors, and includes breakout sessions for each sector as well. A few weeks ago, we announced the opening of registration and introduced the first of the eminent speakers who will be participating. Today, we are proud to announce five more of them.
