Citizen’s Climate Community Workshop in Hancock!

I hope you had a wonderful climate march Saturday! The sun was out and it wasn’t snowing, so by definition it was a great day. Sarah Green (Michigan Tech Climate Scientist) is in DC attending the huge climate march, meeting with our elected officials, giving them our constituent letters, and letting them know how much our Keweenaw community cares about a healthy climate and healthy environment.

Do you want to be a more effective climate advocate? Join us for a free workshop in Hancock MI this coming Saturday May 6 (remember May: the month when the snow goes away). This is part of the Citizen’s Climate Community (CCL) launch in Houghton/Hancock, but you are most welcome to attend even if you aren’t sure you want to be part of CCL (which is focused on a carbon fee and dividend).

The training, led by Elizabeth Dell from CCL, will teach us how to speak powerfully to our elected officials, the media, and our community in order to inspire our neighbors and elected officials to get involved in climate solutions. If we all speak up, we have the power to bring about change. And one place to start is to encourage all our members of Congress to be leaders for a sustainable climate.

Learn how we can meet with our members of Congress, launch letter-writing campaigns, cultivate community education and support, and write letters to the editor and editorials. This is a great chance to learn more about how carbon fee and dividend works and why it would be an effective, bipartisan approach for significantly reducing carbon pollution.

All are welcome, but because the Coop Community Room has limited seating, we ask you to register by clicking here. 

We'll provide snacks from the Coop! So that's another reason to register in advance.
