Sacramento Area Congregations Together (ACT) Environmental Justice Committee
and UUSS Interfaith Earth Justice
Join us to have first hand experience with the diverse people in the neighborhood of West Arden Arcade and to help raise their voices by hearing their concerns and getting out the vote.
Wednesday, October 10 @ UUSS @ 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Join us to learn more about this work and to participate in the planning. We've got a great group and our meetings are fun! Newcomer orientation at 6:30.
Saturday, October 20 @ UUSS @ 9:00 a.m.
We will canvass in West Arden Arcade with two purposes:
- Get out the vote and voter registration
- Listen to people's concerns about their community, especially related to environmental health
We will meet at UUSS at 9:00 for an hour of coffee, snacks and training. We will learn about some of the specific environmental hazards facing the neighborhood we canvass. Gabby Trejo, Executive Director of Sacramento ACT, will train us on how to canvas including some role playing, and answer any questions.
In addition, we are talking with Black Child Legacy and faith leaders in West Arden Arcade to join with others to address environmental racism and hazards in this area.
