Yolo Interfaith Alliance for Climate Justice updates
The newly forming Yolo Interfaith Alliance for Climate is open to any faith group members, or even non-faith folks, who wish to address climate justice and climate disruption issues on a variety of levels. Currently we have people from 8-10 faith groups meeting on a monthly basis. The group is a partner of Cool Davis as are some of the individual faith groups.
Here are some ways faith groups and individuals are invited to participate.
Help plan the “Travel Lite Challenge,” a friendly competition between faith group members to walk, bike, ride transit, or carpool to the first worship of every month, culminating in a month-long “May is Bike Month” celebration.We are preparing a toolkit to help faith groups get started, and our goal is to collect useful data over the course of the year that shows the ghg emissions reductions. Contact: Juliette at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530-902-8407
Next Meeting: possibly Sept. 19th, 4-5:30pm, St. Martin’s Episcopal Church library, new members
Develop resources for congregations who wish to “green” their own facilities and/or develop a campaign to “green” individual households within the congregation.

It was great to see our latest Tuleyome Tale on fungi, written by our on-staff Certified California Naturalist Mary K. Hanson, appear online with the Lake County Record-Bee newspaper. https://t.co/Mp3sY7YLi3 #CalNat
