Tent Talk: Protect Our Winters – Stoking the Vote

June 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

BigTent is excited to welcome Erin Sprague, CEO of Protect our Winters and Team Captain and pro climber  Abbey Smith . In 2024, Protect Our Winters aims to mobilize its alliance members, including athletes, creatives, scientists, brands, and resorts, to encourage civic engagement and voter turnout in November’s general election. The POW ‘Stoke the Vote’ campaign is an opportunity to create a cultural shift toward voting and have an impact on the margins in the most important election of our lifetime. They are combating widespread apathy and misinformation. POW will strategically conduct this work nationally and in targeted geographies where it knows it can have an outsized impact by engaging the Outdoor State.

Join us to hear about POW’s strategies and initiatives to get out the VOTE and how you can get involved in driving meaningful change.
