08/05/2019 This coming up Monday, 8/5 there is a town hall meeting in Point Reyes
4 - 5pm. I realize this is a "working" time for many people, but if you can possibly rearrange to show up-- we need you and the elk do as well!
Rep. Huffman will give an update from Washington D.C., talk about his priorities for Californias North Coast, and respond to your questions.
Jared Huffman has been a huge proponent of the ranching industry and could introduce a bill to ensure ranching stays within the seashore despite the public outcry and public process happening within the seashore currently. He needs to know many concerned citizens are aware of what is going on, and want to protect the elk and the ecosystem within Point Reyes.
We need a lot of people to show up with the intention of asking questions and supporting questions around saving the Tule Elk and protection of native wildlife within Point Reyes National Seashore. In the past, questions have been written down on cards and screened before they get answered. If this is the case, we will do our best to be heard anyway and make sure our Questions get answered! If you want to come, and need help drafting questions, please email me and I can consult.
If you can attend this meeting, it is free and RSVP is preferred.

Summit (8-22 thru 25)

Climate change threatens to touch every aspect of human life; it's not just one issue: it's everywhere. That's why we need this debate, and that's why we need your voice with us.
We will start to take action to pressure the DNC the evening of August 22, but it's okay to attend the Summit (24-25) if you can't get to the Bay by the 22.

09/08/2019 Joanna Macy and Sunrise: Rising to the Climate Emergency

Sunday, Sept. 8, 10:30 AM

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

When you think of the upcoming Global Climate Strike (Sept. 20-27), who is leading the demonstrations? Young people, right? Theyre increasingly taking the lead for climate related actions through organizations such as Sunrise. The dark hour in America cannot last, proclaims this new youth-centered activist group.
But marching beside the young people is spirit if not always in body will be revered elders in the ecology movement such as Joanna Macy, the author of 13 books and a veteran of six decades of political activism.
In fact, Macy and Sunrise people will literally be standing side by side at an upcoming event Rising to the Climate Emergency: What Can we Count On? at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists on September 8.
The climate emergency is really serious, says Macy, but we dont want people to feel paralyzed by the enormity of the challenge. We must help everyone find resources within themselves to realize they can make a difference.
Macy is most noted for The Work that Reconnects, workshops that inspired thousands to experience their connections with each other and gain motivation to play their part in creating a sustainable civilization.
Macys spiritual descendants in the Sunrise Movement are definitely eager to play their part. Theyre building a mass movement to stop the climate crisis and create millions of good-paying jobs in the process.
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists is one of the epicenters of progressive political action in Berkeley, through its own actions and the many activist groups that meet there. All who are concerned about the climate crisis are invited to join Joanna Macy and Sunrise at 10:30 AM September 8. Free potluck and lively conversation will follow.

Free to the public.
Wheelchair accessible.

Seventh Annual International Plant-Based Nutrition Healthcare Conference
Breaking new ground, this medical conference transcends the individual experience comprised of anecdotal stories and historical research often associated with plant-based nutrition.
The conference objective is to support the benefits of a plant-based dietary lifestyle through a review of current and progressive scientific research evidencing the preventive and disease fighting capabilities of whole food, plant-based nutrition. Geared toward medical doctors from a variety of specialty areas, as well as allied healthcare professionals, the information on plant-based nutrition will be presented with a commitment to intellectual integrity, without bias or influence.

FILM SCREENING: Point of No Return
Vegetarian House
520 E Santa Clara St, San Jose, California 95112


Soaring at 28,000 feet without a drop of fuel, nothing is predictable. Not the weather, not the technology. And certainly not the fate of a man, alone for five days in a fragile, first-of-its-kind aircraft with nothing but ocean below.

Point of No Return takes you behind the headlines of the first solar-powered flight around the worldwhere two courageous pilots take turns battling nature, their own crew, and sometimes logic itself, to achieve the impossible. Not just to make history, but to inspire a revolution.


Dinner and movie for only $20.00!
Please RSVP

Despite what the U.S. Administration is doing to deny the effects of Climate Change, people around the country are doing something about it. National Geographic's film From Paris to Pittsburgh shows inspiring stories of local, private sector, and community leaders across the U.S. who are continuing to take action to transition to a clean energy economyregardless of federal inaction.
Bring your family, friends and neighbors and join us!
