The program is called “Climate Action N.O.W. (Neighborhood Organizations of Washington)” and is intended to apply neighborhood organizing principles to the climate crisis issue. The mission of Climate Action NOW is to develop and then promote small neighborhood study/action groups to understand the urgency of the climate crisis and then to support participants to take appropriate action, either as a neighborhood group or individually. Neighbors are invited to a first meeting, which will include a potluck, childcare and facilitated discussion and readings. Those who are persuaded that the climate crisis is real, is urgent and that we can/should do something, will be invited to continue meeting for the purpose of determining what actions the group, or individuals in the group, can take to respond to the situation. It is anticipated the meetings/potlucks will repeat thereafter as interest and enthusiasm determine.
