Corte Madera Community Center 498 Tamalpais Drive, Corte Madera
According to the recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), humanity has just over a decade to get carbon emissions under control before catastrophic climate change impacts become unavoidable.
A bold resolution has been put forward in Washington: The Green New Deal (GND). Modeled after the 1930s New Deal, the GND proposes massive investment in clean energy, green jobs, equitable opportunities, and infrastructure meant to transform not just the energy sector, but the entire economy. Proponents of the GND legislation want to decarbonize the economy and increase equity and social justice.
The evening will offer an opportunity to learn more from people on the front lines of the GND, including the Sunrise Movement, a nascent but rapidly expanding group of young people advocating to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process.
Speakers:
Jared Huffman, US Representative (CA 2nd District); Mukta Kelkar organizes with Sunrise Movement Bay Area
Isaac Silk is an organizer of the Bay Area Sunrise Movement. He is a musician and writer turned podcast producer and engineer, interested in the environment and politics. Mark Hertsgaard is Environmental Correspondent for The Nation and author of Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth

Saving Point Reyes National Seashore
Public · Hosted by The Shame of Point Reyes and Watching Humans
Thursday, April 25, 2019 at 6:30 PM  8 PM
188 The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94105
Google Space - Main Room
With the public comment period fast approaching it is increasingly important for bay area residents to know the situation unfolding in Point Reyes National Seashore.
Jared Huffman's attempted bill was a wake-up call as to what the future of the park is facing. Rather than removing private ranchers who have stayed beyond their leases, the park is faced with increased ranching and the killing of native wildlife in the interest of ranching profits. Although this is appalling, most people simply don't know it's happening.
This event will feature a screening of the film 'The Shame of Point Reyes' followed by a short presentation explaining some of the most controversial and confusing aspects of this National Park. A panel of experts on the topic will then answer any questions the crowd may have.
Tax-deductible donations are requested to assist in further documentation of the park and the efforts to educate the public.

Owners of five eco-friendly East Bay homes in Berkeley, Kensington and Albany will open their doors to about 100 attendees to showcase their sustainable, carbon footprint-reducing home improvements such as water recapture systems, solar panels, sustainable building design and materials, and waste reduction and recycling strategies.

Ay Mariposa Film (plus 2 shorts) at Doclands festival
IN PERSON: INTRODUCTION BY JULIA BUTTERFLY HILL with Director Krista Schlyer, Film Subject Marianna Travino Wright
Three conservationists with a bent for cogent images and film join forces in the eleventh hour to capture the natural wonder of the monarch butterfly in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas as it faces impending environmental challenges brought on by Trump's border wall. In the film, we meet Zulema Hernandez, a 77-year-old former migrant worker who has joined in the wall protests with her borderlands neighbors, and Marianna Trevino Wright, director of the National Butterfly Center, who is mounting a legal challenge to preserve the butterflys habitat that lies directly in the path of the wall. With a strong focus on the wildlife and the people of the US-Mexico borderlands whose lives will be affected, Ay Mariposa is a film that will educate as well as motivate.

Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 11 AM  1 PM
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
1001 Fairgrounds Drive, Vallejo, California 94589
On Saturday, May 11th, 2019, protests and educational events will be held all over the world in front of marine parks and aquariums. If the park is exploiting marine mammals for entertainment and profit then we want people out front creating noise and awareness. The only way to see an end to this abuse of dolphins is to get the general public to stop buying tickets. We need your voice, your posters, and your dedication to seeing an end to the marine mammal captivity industry. Information and education is vital - our signs tell the stories and we will have flyers to hand out.
* Time: 11AM - 1PM
*This is a PEACEFUL protest!
