The Community Voices Series is a monthly virtual convening drawing diverse participants from the network to amplify local climate work, connect members and groups, and support each other's actions. Once per quarter, MiCAN members also gather in person for a hybrid event with the opportunity to mingle with local, likeminded counterparts. MiCAN rotates the content and geographical area of focus to allow the audience to learn from and mimic other Michigan communities' successful contributions to the collective climate movement.
