Join us in building solidarity amongst parents by taking action to protect the health and safety of our collective future. In celebration of National Poetry month and inspired by the article, "Can poetry turn the tide on climate change?" (written by John Dexter and published in The Adelaide Review), we'll explore how poetry can impact the movement for climate justice. We'll also talk about the role of HOPE in organizing.
A vegetarian meal and childcare for ages 8 and under will be provided. RSVP helpful, but not required. Contact Abby Mnookin for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's a link to the article ~
Mother Up!: Families Rise Up for Climate Action is a project of 350VT bringing together families to talk about the tough realities of climate change and to participate in the transition to a healthier and safer world. What Joanna Macy calls the “Great Turning,” or the third revolution, is this unprecedented time where we are called to stop the destruction of our world, to build new life-sustaining practices and ways of being, and to shift our collective consciousness. We especially wish to engage young parents in this vital discussion of how we can make positive changes to protect our planet for our children's future.
We meet as a large group on 4th Mondays, with smaller "action groups" meeting at other times.
