Outreach and Political Action

Daniel - Federal/State politician outreach
1) Create a presentation that covers Peak Oil and possibly global warming
2) Setup meetings with staffers for local House and Senate representatives. A small group would be present to off support and share personal anecdotes

Web Information
Effort to create a local powering down resource base

  • UNC Program to help weatherize houses [reference?]
  • Clean Energy Durham
  • CommunitySolution.org
  • Local Currency
  • Gardens

We used to have the website domain NCPowerdown.org, but this looks like it is now defunct (8/20)

We also have a group page at Relocalization.net (no active use right now just a single page)

Tabling at Local Events
  • A handout has been created previously for our conference
  • Extend handouts as appropriate and collect table and display materials for easy use at future events

T-Shirt Design Contest
Spend an evening or two designing T-shirts and posting at a one of the following sites
Would provide some publicity, a way for members to get a good t-shirt, and if we were very lucky the potential for some revenue. A cursory examination of the sites left some room I think for some creative new designs.

USA Powerdown - Go "national" with Powerdown as an organization

Performance of Tracy's Peak Oil play "Colossis Falls" [I wrote this on my notes as "Stumbles" - are we just stumbling rather than falling? ?AP]
