Climate, Civil Rights Topic of Program
The Sitka chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby invites the community to a Civil Rights and Climate Justice Conversation 4-5:30 p.m. Jan. 21, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, at the See House behind St. Peter’s Episcopal Church at 611 Lincoln Street.
CCL invites community members to hear what Martin Luther King III has said about his father, civil rights and climate change; learn about the “Energy Innovation Act” and Citizens’ Climate Lobby; share concerns, conversation and hope for the future with neighbors and friends; and take action to combat climate change and bring environmental justice to all.
The event will be an appetizer potluck. Participants can take a finger food to share if they wish.
“We’re excited to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day by sharing hope for the future and taking action on climate change,” said CCL organizer Michelle Putz.
Call 747-2708 for information about the event. Citizens’ Climate Lobby information is at citizensclimatelobby.org.
