At the Town Hall we came up with a great range of actions that can help the Sacramento region address climate change. Many of those actions require buy-in from decisionmakers like the City Council, Board of Supervisors, SACOG, RT, etc, but what are these bodies, who does what, and how does it all work? That's what we're going to find out from Erik De Kok this Wednesday.
You met Erik at the Town Hall--he was the lead planner for the Sacramento Climate Action Plan and knows the power structure of the City. Erik has agreed to help us understand those points of power with his talk "Mapping Power Structures and Climate Policy in the Sacramento Area: Who is making the key decisions and how can we influence the process?" It's a long title and sounds a little wonky, but understanding how things work locally will help us be more effective as we push for progress on the climate and related issues.
Please join us on Wednesday, Nov 19 at 7 pm at the Southside Park Cohousing Common Room (in the center of the 400 block of T St--enter between 412 & 440 T Sts). It's free and, yes, we'll have refreshments.
