Help Stop Global Warming - It Can Be Done!
WHEN: Second Saturday of Every Month, at 11:45am
WHERE: Augustana Lutheran Church, 3647 Lafayette Ave, Omaha, NE
Our meetings are a time to learn something new and renew our connection to those we are working with on the all-important issue of climate change locally, nationally and internationally. The meetings feature a conference call with the Citizens' Climate Lobby organization (which starts promptly at noon), followed by discussion of local actions.
If you can't join us, please write a letter to the editor about global warming and send it to the Omaha World Herald - Pulse@OWH.com (or your favorite local paper found here: http://nebraskansforpeace.org/letters_to_the_editor).
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
CCL's mission is to create the political will for a livable world. We train and support volunteers to reclaim their democracy and engage elected officials and the media to generate the political will for solutions that will stabilize the Earth’s climate. Our focus is to build support for federal legislation to place a steadily increasing fee on fossil fuels in which all of the revenue is returned directly to households.
If you are not near Omaha, you may find a CCL meeting anywhere in the world (Yes, this is a world wide problem with a world wide effort to solve it) at https://citizensclimatelobby.org/join-citizens-climate-lobby/
