There are 90,000 school board members in the country. These are the only elected leaders with a singular focus on the well-being and future success of children.
As far as we can tell, 25 of them have taken a public stand on the need for climate action. However, we are pretty sure tens of thousands more school board members already believe that climate change is a children's issue. They may also already believe that all leaders and all institutions should speak up and take action on climate change. We can help these school board members make this privately held believe public, explicit, and powerful. They could move the needle building public will for science-based climate policies. These policies, in turn, will help preserve all the environmental values we love so much.
Please join the monthly Zoom Meeting on Thursday 2.8 at 5:30
We know of organizing efforts in at least 7 additional school districts---5 in Northern California, 1 in Southern California, and 1 in Ohio. Who is next?
Thanks for all you do and I look forward to working with you!
