A4D Monthly Meeting Next Week
Julia DeGraw and Nora Apter will be joining A4D Tuesday, May 25 at 5:00pm for our monthly meeting. They will speak to us about critical climate legislation in Oregon. As the Coalition Director of Oregon League of Conservation Voters, Julia has insider information on environmental bills working their way through the state legislature. She will update us on bills A4D’s Climate, Energy, and Environment Action Team supports along with other bills impacting Oregon's future, including natural resources budget bills that are critical for executing the Governor's Oregon Climate Action Plan (OCAP). Nora is the Climate Program Director at the Oregon Environmental Council and a key strategic leader of the Oregon Climate Action Plan Coalition, which advocates for agency action to reduce emissions and protect Oregonians from the impacts of climate change. To prepare for their presentations, you may want to review the following documents:
