PROVIDING AIR PURIFIERS FOR OUR NEIGHBORS: Partnering with Climate Resilient Communities (CRC), we are promoting a campaign to raise $20,000 to purchase 125 air purifiers for neighbors in East Palo Alto and other neighborhoods where air quality continues to be unhealthy. Each device costs $150. Contributions in any amount are warmly welcomed. Donations can be made here. The good news is that we already met our previous goal of $15,000, so CRC has upped the ante. We believe we can succeed in partnership with Beth Am and Spark Congregation.

 

EDUCATIONAL EVENTS: Acknowledging that each of us needs to grow in learning in order to become motivated and then to choose our actions wisely, we have sponsored a series of meetings with wise teachers. We met with Rev. Danielle Parish who had just returned from the world climate meeting in Scotland, Dr. Chris Jones  and our own Phil Metz to be introduced to consumption based emissions. We promise more to come.
