Climate Chat: Toward an Ecological Civilization - Aug. 27, 7 pm
The recent four-day "Pando Conference" gathered over a thousand people with the goal of re-thinking an ecological civilization and the most important actions we can take to achieve it. This Chat will sample the conference and feature higlights from Bill McKibben's keynote address, maintaining a moral compass, and helping to cope with the threat of climate crises. Info / RSVP
Save the Date: Interfaith Climate Action Forum - Sep. 24, ~7 pm
On the day the Pope speaks to Congress, we'll gather to celebrate the Encyclical, hear from different faith leaders, and identify actions we can take right here to advance climate justice. Contact us to help plan.
Update on Key California Climate Bills
SD350 members have met nearly all seven San Diego County Assembly Members (below, with Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez) to urge them to support important bills (these will be voted on in the next couple of weeks). Please take action today to help these bills pass by signing these two petitions and calling your assemblymembers.
SB350 and SB 32 petition (GHG reduction targets, more renewables and efficiency) and SB 185 petition (coal divestment).
Read more about these bills.
