All are welcome to join the D.C. Environment and Energy Associations (DCEEA) for a pro bono panel to discuss opportunities for involvement in environmental and climate change initiatives.


With widespread attention increasingly focused on climate change initiatives, many are interested in exploring opportunities to get involved in grass-roots and pro bono efforts. Leading experts in these areas will explore the numerous aspects of and ways to become involved in a variety of types of pro bono work, including litigation, especially those in the form of citizen suits and petitions for rulemaking; advocacy, especially through testifying before government agencies, letter writing to agencies, lobbying, etc.; and hands-on non-legal volunteer opportunities. At the conclusion of their remarks, expert panelists will field questions from participants during a Q&A session. Participants are welcome to learn about tangible ideas and opportunities for involvement in pro bono opportunities for climate change initiatives and environmental issues more broadly.
