EARTHDAY – APRIL 22nd – LOVE YOUR MOTHER!
CONGRATULATIONS TO “SUSTAINABLE WENATCHEE’S” EXCELLENT EARTH DAY FAIR THIS PAST WEEKEND! The weather was beautiful, the booths were fun and interesting and approximately 1,000 people attended the fair. Our 350Wenatchee.org/Interfaith Climate Group/CCNCW booth offered participants a chance to write to leadership of 3 different groups to express their opinion on: 1) The Biden Climate Conference coming up this week, 2) The Department of Ecology – calling for strong policy in their “New Rules for Fossil Fuels”, or 3) Chase Bank – asking them to stop funding fossil fuel extraction infrastructure. People could also make a decorative, biodegradable “Earth Hanger” to place on their favorite tree or bush. WELL DONE EVERYONE!
LAST CHANCE TO HAVE A “CLIMATE/JUSTICE” IMPACT ON THE LEGISLATURE! The legislative session is quickly coming to an end. Many of our key issues are tied up in the budgets so we may not know the outcomes until the very end. Take this opportunity to let your legislators know what you are thinking. You will also be able to let the Civil Action Team (CAT) know what you think of their process.
Did you miss the Earth Fair? You can still participate in an ACTION!
