Joining Youth and Age on the Climate Crisis

Tuesday, November 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Please join members of the SF Gray Panthers for an important and timely presentation about the climate crisis and how we in the Bay Area can bring youth, elders, and all of us together to save the planet.
 
Speakers are:
•    Mary Jean Robertson, Cherokee host of KPOO’s “Voices of Native Nations” for 45 years
•    Muriel MacDonald, of Sunrise, young people united to stop the climate crisis and create good-paying jobs in the process
•    Martha Hawthorne, a well-known local labor and environmental justice activist and musician
 
The Bay Area has been a center of environmental activism for years, as scientific evidence and lived experience of the rapidly advancing deterioration of our global climate has prompted us to respond with increasing urgency, here and around the world.
 
For hundreds of years, Native Americans, including tribes in the Bay Area, have set an example for the rest of us by living lightly on the earth, in balance and harmony with nature. The US environmental movement that sprang up in the 60s and 70s was enthusiastically supported by Bay Area residents. SF hosted the Global Climate March that preceded a Global Climate Summit in September of 2018. This year, the youth-led global climate strike and march had Bay Area actions, and their organizing and action are ongoing.
 
Please join a discussion led by three SF environmental justice activists who have dedicated themselves to organizing public awareness and action on behalf of the environment, to help people in the Bay Area take effective steps and move our region, California and the entire planet toward a more sane and sustainable approach to Mother Earth.
