Advocacy Training Workshop

Saturday, April 1, 10 am to 2 pm

Climate change endangers our county and all life on Earth. How can we unite our voices of faith and spirituality to protect what we love? Join us for education and training. Together our voices will ring out as effective advocates for change.

Learn about 3 critical issues we can address NOW.

What can our faith community do:

1) to address health inequities in our county?

2) reduce the toxins residents are exposed to?

3) reduce transportation pollution?

Will Scott, California Interfaith Power and Light, California Legislative Actions for 2017;  Andrés Soto, Communities for a Better Environment, BBAQMA, Cap on Refinery Emissions – Health Impacts;  350 Bay Area, Options to Reduce Emissions from Transportation; Cynthia Mahoney, M.D., Health Effects of Fossil Fuel Pollution
