7:30-8:00 Climate Change Committee Meeting – THE END OF COVID! Please! Please! Please! We will begin planning to restart our action teams this meeting and allow people to sign up to continue the work to not just stop climate change, but to restore our climate and reverse these insane extreme events back to their normal rare levels. We’ve formed Action Teams on Austin Energy, the Permian Pipeline, Rio Grande Valley Support, Carbon Fee & Dividend, People Power, Data Entry, and Presentations and more. We have identified additional action teams we’d like to form, including Transportation, Climate Justice, Partner Organizations, School Education, and Social Media. Whether you have only minutes a month or hours a day, join us to build a mass movement to stop climate change. Or join another group fighting this vital cause.
