While 350 Sacramento is involved in efforts to stop those activities digging us deeper into the climate change hole (Keystone, tar sands transport, fracking, etc.) we are also working on opportunities for positive change in Sacramento. And, we like to have fun--please join us for our meeting/party on December 10.
350 Sacramento Holiday Meeting and Potluck—Please join us on Tuesday, December 10, for our final meeting of the year (1 hour only) and a potluck party (the rest of the time). Meeting starts at 5:30 and party at 6:30. Our venue will accommodate only 25 people so please RSVP soon (http://www.evite.com/l/d7g6BjfxHz/v?utm_content=title). All are welcome! If you want to get involved but are feeling shy, or just want to meet the 350 Sac core planning group, this is a great time to join us.
Candlelight Vigil: Climate Justice for the Philippines—On November 22 we held a candlelight vigil for victims of the supertyphoon that devastated the Philippines and killed thousands. This typhoon was the strongest storm ever recorded on landfall and was exacerbated by sea level rise--undoubtedly related to climate change. We organized this event to highlight the connections between this tragedy, climate change, and the UN climate talks going on at the time in Warsaw. Thank you to all who came out at such short notice! You can still make donations to recovery in the Philippines at Brigada Kalikasan (http://brigadakalikasan.org/) or Friends of the Earth Philippines (https://org.salsalabs.com/o/455/p/salsa/donation/common/public/?donate_page_KEY=10497)
Town Hall Meeting—We're working to present a Town Hall Meeting on Climate Change that will involve the Sacramento community and elected officials in this important issue. The next planning meeting is December 4 at 7 pm. If you are interested in participating in the planning process please call Laurie 916-284-1627 or email@example.com. Details to come.
Keystone Pledge of Resistance—President Obama will make his decision about the Keystone XL Pipeline soon, probably sometime in January. If this pipeline is built NASA Chief Climate Scientist James Hansen calls it "game over for the climate." This is the line in the sand we have to hold. If the President approves the project, over 76,000 people, including many in Sacramento, have pledged to engage in civil disobedience.

Thank you for all you do to make a better future,
