Wednesday, Oct 27 - Wednesday, October 27
5:30pm - 7:00pm

Location: Online Event
Audience: Adults

Advocating for the EnvironmentOrdinary people have more power to change the world than they think they do. But it is hard to stay positive and motivated in the face of devastating weather and constant bad news about politics and the environment. Join us on October 27th as we welcome author Susan B. Inches for a presentation on how to find your power and take action for the environment—as an advocate or within current daily activities. By working together, we can create a healthy future where all life is respected, revered and nurtured. This talk will show you how.
