Thu Oct 24, 2013 at 1:03 PM PT: Good Afternoon,
You are invited to attend a White House Champions of Change event on Tuesday, November 5th, highlighting Veterans Advancing Clean Energy and Climate Security. This is a rescheduling of the event previously planned for October 8th.
As part of the Champions of Change program, the event will feature Americans who are doing extraordinary things to empower members of their communities, protect our planet, and strengthen our security and economy. On November 5th, Senior Administration officials will participate in a discussion with these Champions to learn more about how they are advancing clean energy and issues of climate security in their local communities and how their military service has informed that work.
We invite you to attend the event as we recognize and hear from each of the Champions of Change selected by the White House.
The event is planned for November 5th from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, South Court Auditorium, at the White House. All attendees must return the attached security form to CEQ at Events@ceq.eop.gov as soon as possible but no later than Thursday, October 24th at 12:00 PM (noon).
Please RSVP again even if you responded to the October 8th invitation and please contact us at Events@ceq.eop.gov with any questions. We hope you can join us to honor these leaders and look forward to welcoming you on November 5th.
