What:  Panel Discussion

We are reminded constantly by news of hurricanes, floods, droughts and fires that climate change is upon us.  It is essential that we take action now to avert the worst outcomes that might come.  Join us to learn more about what actions we can take to reverse climate change and preserve a livable climate for our children.

 

Speaker 1: Norma Polizzi, local environmental lawyer and member of the Climate Reality Project.  Norma will share with us information on the current state of the atmosphere and international efforts to work together.

 

Speaker 2: Sue Staropoli, Pachamama Alliance.  Sue will introduce us to the Drawdown Project, a list of the 100 most effective changes we can make to reverse climate change. 

 

There will be letters we can write to policy makers.  Local environmental groups will be present to help us find where to connect for this important work.

 

Admission is $5.  Light refreshments will be served.  A sign-language interpreter will be available if requested by Jan. 9. Registration in advance is appreciated.  You can register at www.ncjwgrs.org.  Questions: email info@ncjwgrs.org, or call Arlene Schenker at 704-4193
