seems like an audio issue. can hear her very softly
Rev. Earl Koteen
r u going to share the slides after the call?
Are these just for electricity or also replacing gas, etc, with renewable electricity?
Looking at gofossilfree.org What resources do you provide to help communities go fossil free (beyond the gathering)?
We are familiar
No audio from video
Lin Hagedorn, Northshore UCC Woodinville, WA. I unmutted, but no luck, tried a stand alone microphone but the feedback was too loud to be acceptable, so sorry! Hopefully will have all these issues worked out before our next meeting. Happy to talk to anyone after the meeting.
We can help 350.org . We are raising mission-aligned funds for our church and directly reducing atmospheric CO2 by helping homeowners go solar. Learn more at http://www.wecan.dowellbydoinggood.us
I think congregations may benefit from training in Community Organizing skill development. We know well how to do Direct Service but there has been a learning curve for me in particular in how to do Systemic Change work.
How is 350 different from IPL’s
thank you Brooks!
Toolkit on moving banks: http://www.ucc.org/the_find_a_better_bank_toolkit
I have the same question as Joseph. How is 350 different from IPL?
350 Eastside is participating in a newly formed group - People for Climate Action. A coalition of various environmental groups in the area, supporting each other as we meet w/ and present to local city governments a call to move to fossil free.
350 is also not as singularly focused on working with faith communities as IPL is — 350 seeks to mobilize and unite people from all sectors
Here are the slides by the way, including links
Partnering with 350 will provide a congregation with the resources needed to move environmental justice work forward. Even if you are a small congregational group, you will find the support you need to make change happen.
How can we reach resources (websites)?
Definitely the tip of the iceberg :)
THank you so much for the oppty to speak with you - we would love your feedback on what was exciting, what was confusing, what other questions you have.
THANK YOU ALL for everything you are doing!
Thanks so much… very important!
Thank you - this was helpful and opens up real possibilities for our groups
Thank you all for your contributions. I look forward to receiving the recap.
Please also send the links that have been in the chat since we won’t be able to access them from either of the other links you plan to send
Put the actual link on your slide
