Rebuild Maryland: Climate Action Summit @ College Park, MD - Colony Ballroom in the Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland
Dec 14 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Saturday, December 14th, a coalition of advocacy groups large and small—faith leaders, labor activists, environmental groups, and others—will be hosting an exciting one-day conference called Rebuild Maryland: Climate Action Summit. We anticipate over 400 people joining us! Prepare to speak out faithfully for strong climate solutions in the upcoming Maryland legislative session.

The conference is free to attend, and includes bagels, coffee, and lunch, but we suggest those who can include a donation of $25 to help cover costs.

We’ll have break-out groups where you can hear about the possibilities for expanding public transit, building the power of organized labor in clean energy, and learn from case studies in other states. Join us!

Public Hearing for Clean Transportation @ Seattle, WA - Washington State Convention Center, Room 2AB
Dec 19 @ 11:00 am – 8:00 pm

Transportation is our top source of climate pollution in Washington. Reducing emissions from our transit system is critical to promote climate health. Right now, we have an important opportunity to improve public health and reduce emissions by transitioning to cleaner transportation fuels.

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) is currently considering a clean fuel standard for its four-county region. A clean fuel standard sets a limit on the greenhouse gas emissions from transportation fuels, limiting harmful air pollution in the process. California’s clean fuel standard will contribute to over $8 billion in healthcare cost savings by 2025, and Washington is the only West Coast state without a policy on the books.

PSCAA will hold a public hearing on its draft clean fuel standard proposal on December 19th in Seattle.
Can you join the Washington PSR clinician contingent and speak up for local climate action?

Rally: 11:00AM – 11:30AM
First Session: 12:30PM – 4:30PM
Second Session: 5:00PM – 8:00PM

Please send your comment to PSCAA: health professionals and advocates support a healthier transportation system.

Film Screening: “Unnecessary Evil” and “Circle of Poison” @ Tucson, AZ - The Loft Cinema
Jan 5 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Free screening of the short film Unnecessary Evil, followed by the full length documentary Circle of Poison. After the screenings there will be a Q & A.

Unnecessary Evil
Short film by Justin Clifton about uranium mines tailings pollution in the Colorado River affecting the Havasupai First Nations peoples in Arizona.

Circle of Poison
Documentary about agro-pesticide pollution in international lands in India, Argentina and Mexico. This also effects US food consumption and first nation lands.

The proximity of pesticide use in Yaqui communities in Sonora Mexico near to Tucson, as well as other international locales make this a poignant film for Tucson audiences. The films illustrate corporate malfeasance, circular lobbying rotations in DC, and health effects of unjust environmental practices. PSR-AZ links the environmental and nuclear industries as significant polluters.

Co-sponsored by PSR Arizona and International Indian Treaty Council.
