In this 1 hour zoominar, you will build confidence in how to speak about the CTERA – aka CT Green Amendment – so you can become an active educator and leader in this historic effort to secure constitutional protection of our environmental rights.

If you want to invest a little extra time; the session will include an additional half hour where individuals can practice answering some of the frequently asked questions discussed in the first hour, or where you can share your 2 minute elevator pitch on how and why the CTERA is needed in Connecticut.
