Wow!! So many exciting activities in April and May! Join in where you can. Not in chronological order:
May 17. Town Hall Meeting on Climate Change. This historic full-day event will bring the community together to seek concrete local solutions to the climate crisis. Mark Hertsgaard, author of "Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth," will keynote the town hall, with Erik de Kok bringing the discussion back home to the Sacramento area. Radio personality Kat Maudru will be the MC. There will be time for public input, elected officials will let us know how we can help them effect change, and we will network around interest areas and come up with climate actions that continue beyond the town hall. Plus, good food and amazing people. And we'll end with a party with live band. Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 17, 9:30–5:30. The website for information and registration will be unveiled next week. Volunteers needed.
Wanted: we need facilitators and note-takers (8 of each) for the town hall. Training will take about 2 hours--some prior facilitation experience preferred (but not required). Contact Chris Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org.
May 10. Book Group. Come talk about "Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth" by Mark Hersgaard before the town meeting. May 10, 10am–12pm at Shine Cafe (tentative venue).
April 19. Earth Day at Southside Park from 11–4 pm. Come visit 350 Sacramento--volunteers wanted to help staff the table. Also, we need volunteers to staff the Sac State Earth Day (April 17) and the American River College Earth Day (April 23). Please contact Laurie, email@example.com.
April 13. A fabulous must-watch 9-part series on climate change will premiere on Showtime on April 13. The first episode of "Years of Living Dangerously," produced by James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger, is available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brvhCnYvxQQ. If you have Showtime, host a party of your friends and neighbors to watch the show.
May is Bike Month. Join the 350 Sacramento team this year and start racking up miles. It's fun, healthy, and good for the planet. Choose your own goal and ride alone or with others--we'll schedule some group rides and gatherings during the month. Go to http://www.mayisbikemonth.com/ to sign up.
