Tackling Climate Change Locally

Catherine Day, who has formed a “Transition Town” group in Las Cruces, will discuss how its members are taking action locally on climate change. The towns are part of a national Transition Movement that seeks to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. Transition Initiatives differ from other  "environmental" groups in that they work to stave off converging global crises in their own home towns through tactics that include citizen-led education and actions.  Day, an NMSU doctoral student, recently attended an international conference on Transition Town initiatives.  Her talk will be held Tuesday, Aug. 12 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, Roadrunner Room in Las Cruces. The event is free and open to the public.

TIME TO PARTNER UP: PUBLIC MEETING

TIME TO PARTNER-UP: JULY 11 MEETING

 

Face it, the news out of Washington is grim.  Period.  It’s another story in NMD2 and for WE’RE IN: Las Cruces Indivisible.  As we take our fight local, it's time to PARTNER-UP for the challenges ahead.  Beginning with our July 11 meeting we will begin forming partnerships with like-minded organizations for our mutual benefit. 

    It’s important for all of our members—the 116 on Facebook, plus those on our huge mailing list—to attend this July 11 meeting.  There we will divide into groups to talk with a representative of the four organizations that represent groups who are most affected by Republican rule.  Our members will rotate among the four groups with ample time for Q&A.  You will have the chance to meet with leaders from Reproductive Rights, Progress Now, Health Security for New Mexicans and the ACLU.  Don't miss the chanceto play a key role in partnership development.

    The meeting is July 11, 5:00-7:00 p.m. at Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, Roadrunner Room, Las Cruces.

TAKING A BREAK

    WE’RE IN is taking a two-week break June 26-July 7.  That will allow you time to phone Sen. Udall and Sen. Heinrich (and Rep. Pearce) to defeat the senate’s Robbing Hood Trumpcare bill.  The Steering Committee will use this break as a planning time.  We already have a rally scheduled for August, so stay tuned.  And make those phone calls.
