League of Women Voters Oakland in collaboration with other community partners is hosting a “Community Round-table on: Climate Crisis in Oakland: What We Can Do”.

Environmental health is already a significant issue to families as evidenced by high asthma rates in both East and West Oakland. What do we understand about carbon tax or reforestation? What of plastic bags and plastic straws? What can we really do about it? In response, we have assembled a group of respected resource experts with varying perspectives to help us begin the conversation and identify steps we can take to help ourselves.

Resource experts from a diverse field of perspectives: science, economics and public health will set the groundwork for a robust dialogue on what we can do for ourselves to be part of climate action in Oakland. Join the conversation!

Experts joining include:
- Margaret Gordon, Co-director, West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project
- Jon Haveman, Ph.D., Economist, Executive Director, National Economic Education Delegation
- Hon. Dan Kalb, Councilmember, District 1, City of Oakland & former California Policy Director for the Union of Concerned Scientists
-Richard Sinkoff, Director, Environmental Programs & Planning, Port of Oakland
-Laiseng Saechao, Political Director, Asian Pacific Environmental Network
-Diz Swift, Ph.D., LWVC Climate Change Program Director
