How are actions on climate change issues faring in the CA Legislature? Still time to help?
Also, a vote on a bylaws change.
We heard from our powerful and highly informative featured speaker, Kathy Dervin, Co-Chair of 350 Bay Area Legislative Committee and a consulting professional with a Master of Public Health (MPH) focused in Health Education/Environmental Health.
Kathy presented a compelling overview of pending legislation relating to Climate Change (see bold text below). She also covered
- the Sept. 20 Climate Strike and 350 Bay Area’s work through Youth vs Apocalypse, the youth‐led environmental justice program
- and Climate Emergency Resolutions that various governments are now passing, which Benicia may soon consider. (See map of Bay Area cities that have passed a Climate Emergency Declaration!)
We made plans to post here and send out by email an URGENT CALL TO ACTION! > With only three days to the close of the California Legislature’s session (until Sept 13th), everyone was asked to call Assembly member Grayson and Senator Dodd’s office ASAP to advocate on the following bills: (see details at URGENT! Call our representatives today!! or download the list)
The vote on a bylaws change passed unanimously. New language for Bylaws Article V. C. – New Members shall be entitled to vote on all Club matters sixty (60) days after payment of dues. Existing members, upon payment of membership renewal dues, shall be eligible immediately to vote on all Club matters.
