Elders Climate Action (ECA), has launched a Florida chapter! Elders Climate Action is a virtual community raising the voices of the elders and youth in community organizations and legislative bodies. The conveners are Sue Blythe and Maxine Lobel. (Friends may be familiar with Sue Blythe from Florida Interfaith Climate Actions Network activities.)
ECA hopes to expand the climate conversation in Florida, beginning with support of the Week of Climate Action, 20-27 Ninth Month (September).
Other resources and virtual events include:
- 17 and 24 Ninth Month (September), Training for Elders Promote the Vote partnership with the Environmental Voters Project (EVP);
- Amplifying Elders Voice in other organizations we are already involved with; and
- Creating a vision for the new chapter (See contact information below).
