This Month's Guest Speaker is Glen Hooks, a community organizer and environmental activist with the Sierra Club in Arkansas.
He'll be telling us about the Sierra Club's "Beyond Coal" campaign, what the Sierra Club has been up to in Arkansas and nationally, and why it matters.
Glen Hooks is a Senior Campaign Representative for the Sierra Club's "Beyond Coal" campaign, which seeks to move our nation away from dirty coal and toward clean, renewable energy sources. Prior to joining the Sierra Club staff in 2003, Glen worked as an attorney in the public and private sectors, as Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Arkansas, and as a political campaign manager and consultant for numerous candidates and causes. Glen graduated from Hendrix College and the UALR School of Law, and is the father of two teenage sons.
For a lively discussion of current events, AR Freethinker's group news and business, join us at the downtown Little Rock library. Parking is free and plentiful on Sundays.
We meet on the first floor in the East meeting room in the back of the Library. We usually adjourn at about 4:30pm and walk over to the Flying Saucer for dinner, drinks and more fun times.
