Programs of peace, justice and nonviolence for 30 plus years

“4th Sunday at 4”
March 26, 2017 at 4:00 pm
Salem Friends Meeting House
490 – 19th St. NE (corner of Breymen)


First Dimension: The impacts of climate change fall hardest, both globally and within the U.S., on poor and marginalized communities who have made the least contribution to the problem and who have the least resources for coping with the chaotic and disastrous impacts of climate change.

Second Dimension: The transition to a renewable energy future will itself cause disruption for workers and communities economically dependent on fossil fuel industries, leading to a call for a Just Transition that ensures investment in stability for workers and communities with the greatest need. After a brief presentation, there will be an interactive exercise in which we will envision the pathways toward climate justice. The Trump Administration puts our endeavors in all aspects of the struggle for justice in a reality different and more dangerous than the one in which the movement for climate justice emerged. This now has to be part of the discussion.

Our speaker, Laurie Dougherty, is a Co-Coordinator of 350 Salem, OR, local chapter of global climate action organization She has an MS in Public Policy with additional graduate level classes in Environmental Management. Laurie is now retired after an eclectic career that included working in large factories, small Mom and Pop businesses, temp jobs, academic research and non-profit administration.

Please invite others and join us for this presentation
