Monthly BCA Meeting: Coal Export Effort

At the last monthly Bozeman Climate Alliance meeting, we discussed a number of possible projects which we might undertake. The most popular were:

  1. A campaign to oppose increased coal export from Montana
  2. A Climate Change speakers' Bureau

We're going to develop both projects, and our next monthly meeting, on June 26, will be dedicate to the first of them, the coal issue.

Lucky for us, two other groups in Bozeman (an as-yet-unnamed citizen's action group, along with Reclaim Democracy!) composed of about 30 people, have already begun organizing a campaign against coal export. Since they have already established the foundation for this work, we'll join forces with them for this project.

Accordingly, the next BCA meeting will be a combined meeting with the other two groups. At the meeting, we'll discuss the work of the various working groups and discuss how to proceed, among other things.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
