In 2015 the world came together in Paris, and progress has been made since. But with the US withdrawal from that summit’s agreement, what can WE do, in our daily lives, to help stop global warming?

Governor Brown is hosting a “Global Climate Action Summit” in San Francisco from September 14 to 16, but he has been criticized for not doing enough. Will this gathering propose serious, workable solutions to the current climate disaster?

Our August forum will feature three climate change activists: KATHY SETIAN, Environmental Engineer and retired EPA Superfund Project Manager; PENNIE OPAL PLANT, a co-founder of Idle No More SF Bay and signatory to the Indigenous Women of the Americas Defending Mother Earth Treaty; and JAN KIRSCH, medical doctor, speaker on environmental issues for Physicians for Social Responsibility, and coordinator of the 350 Bay Area Speakers’ Bureau.

Representing different, but allied fields, these activists are united in the struggle to save our |planet—and, like most of us, they are deeply concerned that we are not doing nearly enough.

PLEASE JOIN US to explore possible steps for action and ways to start building hope for future generations.
