Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick Joins Our Stay In and Speak Out for Climate Action!

This year, we aren’t playing around. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we aren’t holding our happy, crowded, buzzing, and bubbling annual Play-In for Climate Action in Washington, DC. Instead, we’re asking legislators across the country to join us for virtual events and conversations with their constituents to talk about air pollution, climate action, and what we can do to fight the climate crisis where we live.

On Thursday, August 27, at 12 PM PT/3 PM ET, please join Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-02) on our Facebook page for a conversation with Arizona organizer Columba Sainz and a few of our littlest activists from the congresswoman’s home district.

Rep. Kirkpatrick was born and raised in rural Arizona, moved to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona, and has performed a lifetime of service for Arizona families. She worked as a prosecutor, starting her career in the Pima County Attorney’s Office, before going on to serve in Congress. She represents a diverse district that stretches from the suburbs of Tucson to the more rural border towns in Cochise County. As a member of the influential Appropriations Committee, Ann has crafted a legislative agenda driven by the needs of her constituents. With a focus on making health care accessible and higher education affordable, building a robust infrastructure, addressing climate change, and advocating for the district’s competitive defense industry, Ann has prioritized bipartisan reforms that directly impact the families, businesses, and communities she is honored to represent. Ann and her husband, Roger, live in the Casas Adobes neighborhood in Tucson and spend their free time babysitting their three energetic grandchildren.

Watch the replay.
