Never been to the Toast? Here is a recap from last year’s event:

On February 27, 2019 we hosted another lively evening of conversations on California’s air quality and climate protection policies at the Sutter Club in Sacramento. 

Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon stopped by to welcome our guests and California Air Resources Board Chair Mary Nichols led the Toast to Clearing the Air. Newly-appointed Cal/EPA Secretary Jared Blumenfeld and California State Senator Nancy Skinner discussed the urgency of addressing air pollution issues in our state. As Secretary Blumenfeld stated: “…if we can’t do it here and now, when and where can we do it?”. 

As every year, our reception was an intimate gathering of California’s most influential leaders in the environment and politics, including key legislators, top regulators, business leaders, and environmental advocates. Be sure to join us next year, for another interesting and thought-provoking conversation on the state of the air in California.
