Event description
Leadership forum to hear from local leaders and experts on climate, housing, and safe streets issues in Berkeley.

About this Event

Climate change, air pollution, traffic fatalities: these feel very big and unsolvable.

But they actually can be tackled at the local level. Forward-thinking citizens are needed to take charge. Come hear from our state elected representatives, who are leading on these issues, to find out what YOU can do to combat the big problems.

South Berkeley Now! and North Berkeley Now! -- the two neighborhood groups who are organizing for homes on the Ashby and North Berkeley BART parking lots -- are hosting a leadership forum on housing, climate and safe streets.

The forum will feature Senator Nancy Skinner and Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks, moderated by Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, founder of the Daily Kos. Expert panelists will provide background info on climate change and safe streets: Chris Jones is Director of the CoolClimate Network and Barnali Ghosh is Vice Chair of the Berkeley Transportation Commission, Board member of TransForm, and founded the Berkeley South Asian Walking Tour.

Program note: Dan Kammen will not be able to make it for our event on 11/13. He sends his apologies. CoolClimate Network Director Chris Jones will be speaking in his place.

Berkeley Democratic Club, Berkeley Neighbors for Housing and Climate Action & Walk Bike Berkeley are cosponsors of the event.

The venue is accessible. This event is 100% free to the public, but donations will be accepted!
