Thursday, Oct. 6, 6:30 refreshments & 7:00-9:00 program

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

Join us for an evening with Citizens Climate Lobby members, Amy Gorman and Harry Chomsky for a presentation and discussion on CCLs legislative proposal for a comprehensive and effective solution to the climate crisis. Learn about tools on how to pass climate change legislation. CCL is a national organization that is committed to creating the political will for a sustainable planet.
The presentation will include a specific nonpartisan proposal for pricing carbon emissions. CCL has an active chapter in Alameda County and will be talking about progress made locally toward garnering support for their proposed legislation. This includes recent unanimous passage by the Berkeley and Albany City Councils of resolutions supporting a fully rebated fee on all carbon emissions (differing from cap and trade plans) at the national level. Bring an earth-friendly snack or refreshment to share at 6:30 pm if you would like to.
