A Message from Davis Climate Strike folks:
This Friday - today - we will dedicate our climate strike to Eva and her passionate defense for the rights to dignity and respect for all life. She loved all forms of dancing so we will have her colorful scarves on hand and music. Please wear a facemask and maintain 6 feet of social distance. Please join us TODAY in Eva's memory at the corner of 5th and B, 12:30-2pm.
You may have heard of Eva Dopico who left us last year around this time. She was a beloved teacher at Cesar Chavez Elementary that suffered and eventually succumbed to depression.
Eva was a bright light in our community and an ardent defender of equality and belonging for all. She worked tirelessly and joyfully to restore healthy relationships with the Earth and all her creatures.
Eva had a clever, project-based learning approach to teaching climate change to her second grade class. Each student was asked to build a solar oven with their family, which became a model to learn the science of global warming and how greenhouse gases are trapped by our planet's thickening atmosphere. From there she talked about other impacts of human-induced climate change and told the stories of youth leaders.
Eva was passionate about water and protecting marine life in the oceans from plastics and pollution. She frequently transformed into mermaid form, an experience she also shared with her young students. She was a woman of many superpowers and is dearly missed.
Eva wanted to join the climate strike and march with us in September 2018 but was unable to find a substitute teacher.
This Friday - today - we will dedicate our climate strike to Eva and her passionate defense for the rights to dignity and respect for all life.
She loved all forms of dancing so we will have her colorful scarves on hand and music. Please wear a facemask and maintain 6 feet of social distance.
Please join us in Eva's memory at the corner of 5th and B, 12:30-2pm.
