Who We Are

ACC President Benji Backer to Speak at CRES Forum Event on 6/19

The American Conservation Coalition (ACC) is pleased to announce its participation in the CRES Forum’s “Real Clean Energy & Climate Change Solutions” event, being held on Wednesday, June 19th in Washington DC.  The event is the first of its kind on Capitol Hill, promoting market-based climate/energy solutions that empower both citizens and businesses. ACC President Benji Backer will speak alongside others from Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES), as well as Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL-01).

ACC President Benji Backer said: “This event showcases the growing movement of conservative leadership on climate change. For the future of our globe, we need to activate more conservative voices and conservative policies in important environmental discussions. While the Green New Deal and other left-of-center policies are getting most of the media attention, serious and impactful alternatives are being proposed by conservatives. The conservative movement has work to do to improve its climate message, but this event showcases the steps in the right direction.”

This event will provide market-based solutions to climate change and emissions reductions, and provides a much-needed dialogue about crucial environmental issues.  Learn more about the event and register to attend at
