Sonoma County climate activists’ community summit

February 28, 2020

Sonoma County Climate Activist Network (SoCoCAN!) invites you to join the coalition of groups and concerned individuals for our Community Summit: It’s Up to Us! to be held Sun., March 15, 1:30-6 p.m. at Odd Fellows Hall, 545 Pacific Ave., Santa Rosa.

Wildlife biologist and Sonoma County Poet Laureate Maya Khosla, Sonoma State University graduate student Cory O’Gorman, and Tayse Crocker, North Bay Organizing Project’s indigenous activist, will share their work on wild lands and waters. Elizabeth Kaiser of Singing Frogs Farm in Sebastopol will tell us how to regenerate soils, grow healthy foods and restore balance to our bountiful ecosystem. 

Youth Leaders from Sunrise Movement, and from Schools for Climate Action will share their work and let us know how we can best support them. Woody Hastings, Sonoma County Environmentalist of the Year, and Steve Birdlebough from the Transportation and Land Use Coalition, will shine a light on changes to our energy infrastructure, making massive power outages and PG&E-sparked wildfire a nightmare of the past with community-based energy systems such as microgrids. 

Trathen Heckman from Daily Acts and Transition US will reframe our urgent message as an interconnected whole, a vision of a future that is environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just. Environmental and social justice groups have learned that we are much stronger in coalition and that positive changes happen when we support each other’s initiatives. Our elected officials notice and respond when we come out in strength and speak with one voice. Lynda Hopkins, farmer, environmentalist, and Sonoma County Supervisor will give us an overview of the issues that are facing us in the years ahead and how we can best address them with our elected officials.
