Want to learn where your local candidates for office stand when it comes to sea level rise, flooding and other related issues? Tidal Town Halls — hosted by ReThink Energy Florida — are being held in 15 cities throughout Florida, offering Floridians a chance to hear directly from candidates about their plans for addressing sea level rise if elected. Candidates for all levels of government will attend, from Congress to local municipal positions.

Make sure you’re informed this year at the polls! Find an event near you below. The events are free, but tickets are required. Event dates and times are subject to change; for the most up-to-date list, check out the Tidal Town Halls website.
