Doretta and Kerry have a special message for you. Please read:
We are so grateful for the months we shared of gatherings around climate issues and efforts we can take to do our part in mitigating climate change. We found it deeply heartwarming and exciting that we averaged more than 50 individuals at each of our monthly gatherings that began in October of 2019. Our hope was to complete one year this October 2020 having generated enthusiasm, determination and personal commitments to foster positive change. While Covid-19 ended our opportunity to host in-person meetings, our interest has not changed in continuing to encourage everyone’s involvement in raising awareness, being examples and speaking out and up where change needs to happen to insure a healthy planet for the next generation to come.
Groups have been offering Zoom gatherings around these important issues, many of whom we had present in our Climate Conversation: What Can We Do? gatherings. The National Resource Council of Maine (NRCM), the Center for an Ecology Based Economy (CEBE), Lakes Environmental Association (LEA), and Maine Audubon have been hosting wonderfully inspiring and enriching presentations. We encourage you to follow what they are doing and volunteer wherever you can.
Though we look forward to a future when we can get together in conversation once again, we hope that you will continue in the pursuit of helping to build a healthier planet. One of the most significant things we all can be doing in this time is exercising our right to vote. Vote for planet Earth and legislation that will protect our environment and our democracy.
