On Sun., March 15 the Sonoma County Climate Activist Network (SoCoCAN!), will be hosting “It’s Up to Us,” a Sonoma County Climate Activists Community Summit. The summit will be an opportunity for concerned community members, students, and Sonoma County climate activist groups to connect, build on common ground and brainstorm ideas of how to take action. The gathering will focus on supporting youth movements and indigenous people’s movements, environmental justice, new work directly addressing the climate crisis, ways to keep carbon in the ground, supporting microgrids and local power, working on emergency preparedness and, most importantly, a shared vision of the future.

“I hope that The Sonoma County Climate Activists Community Summit will energize us to connect, to build on common ground, and to pursue actions to address the climate crisis together - thinking globally, acting locally,” says Maya Khosla, one of the organizers of the event.

The summit will feature community members, students and organizations working on climate change issues in Sonoma County and will feature a variety of speakers including Trathen Heckman, Daily Acts Executive Director, Elizabeth Kaiser of Singing Frogs Farm, Steve Birdlebough from the Transportation and Land Use Coalition, Cory O’Gorman from Sonoma State University, Youth Leaders from the Sunrise Movement, Woody Hastings and County Supervisor Lynda Hopkins.

The free summit, open to anyone who is interested, will run from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. and is being held at Odd Fellows Hall in Santa Rosa. 

“What I like best about the summit is that we are bringing youth groups, climate organizations and community members together with good energy and sense of hope - the best ingredients needed to galvanize much-needed change,” says Khosla.
