The Environmental Caucus will be gathering signatures on our petition at two upcoming events. The purpose of our petition is to encourage the Josephine County Commissioners, the Grants Pass City Council, and the Cave Junction City Council to declare a Climate Emergency and develop Climate Emergency Programs to do their part to reduce or eliminate negative impacts on the climate to help reduce or reverse climate change.
We will be at the Logan Will Ultimate Challenge at Grants Pass High School on Friday, January 31st, and Saturday, February 1st. The Logan Will Ultimate Challenge is a debate tournament sponsored by the National Speech & Debate Association. There will be between 300 and 400 entries from 20 schools. You will have an opportunity to see the brightest and the best of our youth in action. In fact, a new member of our caucus will be in the competition. We will have a table and chairs, clipboards, pens, and petitions in the commons. If we have enough help we can take turns watching the competition.
We will be at KS Wild’s Siskiyou FilmFest at the Grants Pass High School Performing Arts Center on Sunday, February 9th from 3 to 8 pm. They always have a great lineup of nature and conservation documentaries of various lengths. There are 10 on the schedule for this year. Again, if we have enough help, we can take turns watching the films.
We can use your help collecting signatures on our petition at these events. If you would like to help, call Rick Flora at 949-463-7710 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Environmental Caucus will be meeting from 1:30 to 3:00 pm on Thursday, January 30th at the JoCo Dems headquarters on 7th and C streets to prepare for these events. Please join us.
