Audience: those that are new to climate change advocacy AND those who have already started doing this work.
Purpose of training: to bring everyone up to speed on climate change, and to develop a regional grassroots team to advocate for ways to deal with energy and climate change issues locally.
The program for this two-day training includes:
Friday, Feb. 21
-overview of climate justice (and injustice), including information about how governments and corporations have affected climate change in a way that has encouraged racism and poverty;
-a community envisioning exercise.
Thursday, Feb 27
-learn about the CLCPA (Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act) that passed last year: the original version, what was taken out, and what was added in negotiations;
-overview of the CCIA (Climate and Community Investment Act), the sister bill to the CLCPA that would provide funding for the CLCPA.
Please invite friends! Attendance at both training sessions is not mandated. You may register for either one of the dates or for both dates. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Climate Justice Committee chairperson Kitty Burns (firstname.lastname@example.org). Let us know how many from your group will attend so that we can have enough food and chairs!
