Join former Congressman Robert Inglis, a Republican from South Carolina, for a panel discussion on bipartisan and market solutions to climate change. He will be joined by Neely Kelley, a New York State Senior Organizer for Mothers Out Front, an organization dedicated to tackling environmental problems, along with a soon-to-be-announced third panelist. We will have catering from Wings Over Rochester available to our audience for free.
Bob Inglis Sr. was the U.S. Representative for South Carolina's 4th congressional district from 1993 to 1999 and again from 2005 to 2011. He is a member of the Republican Party. Inglis was unseated in the Republican primary runoff in 2010 after supporting a Carbon Tax bill that led his party to believe he was too liberal. In 2012, Inglis launched the Energy and Enterprise Initiative, a nationwide public engagement campaign promoting conservative and free-enterprise solutions to energy and climate challenges. E&EI is based in George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, and works to build support for energy policies that are true to conservative principles of limited government, accountability, reasonable risk-avoidance, and free enterprise.
Neely Kelley, the New York state lead organizer for Mother’s Out Front: Mobilizing for a Livable Climate, spearheads a movement of mothers, grandmothers and allies in nine areas around the state that advocate for environmental change. With organizational branches located in Massachusetts and Virginia, Kelley engages New York’s local and state-based sectors while connecting with community partners. As a mother of two, she embraces the organization’s mission of motherhood empowerment.
Hosted by College Republicans.
