We hope you are planning to attend Sunday afternoon's organizing meeting.
New info: Carpooling
We've set up a carpooling "event" here:
This arrangement makes it easy for people who want to get a ride to connect with people who are willing to take riders.
It works best if everyone who is driving signs up -- and the sooner the better! It also works best if everyone looking for a ride signs up even if no relevant drivers have appeared yet. Please watch for opportunities to cut down on the number of vehicles we are using!
New info: Driving?
See note above on carpooling!
New info: Biking
How about biking together from New Haven to the meeting location? Great idea, no? You are invited to meet at the State Street Station (note: not Union Station). The party will leave as soon as a final train arrives at 1:22 p.m. The distance will be about 4.2 miles. The ride will be led by Rob Rocke of Elm City Cycling. Here's a rough approximation of the route (4.2 miles) :
Google says that takes 29 minutes.
New info: We have a new name
After considerable discussion, we have opted for CT Climate Crisis Mobilization (C3M). Learn about it on Sunday. Watch for it in the subject line of e-mail messages.
New info: We have a new e-mail address
[masked]. We will use it from Sunday onward. It might be helpful to add it to your browser's list of approved addresses, so that transmissions don't fall into your spam folder.
New info: A draft of the Call to Action is circulating.
The Call to Action Committee has been busy. See the draft here:
If you have edits to suggest or comments to make, please send them to Ann Gadwah by 5:00 p.m. on Friday. The draft will be discussed -- and voted on -- Sunday.
New info: The Executive Committee has met. Meeting notes here:
New info: The meeting location for Sunday has a conference phone (with external mics, which should make it easier for callers to hear what's going on in the room). If you need to call in, please send text to Melinda Tuhus (mobile[masked]) to get the number. We hope to also have a Zoom session going with an additional mic (send text to Jeff Howard,[masked]).
What is the latest on the Extinction Rebellion, you ask? See this.
