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.
