Elders Climate Action, a project of Elders Action Network, is a nationwide organization of vigorous older folks who are actively engaged in climate advocacy.  An Oregon chapter was started several months ago.  Two of our members in Florence have staged climate strikes for 110 consecutive Fridays (!!); another of our members was a leading litigator back at the dawn of the environmental movement; and as a chapter, we have submitted extensive comments regarding the Oregon Climate Protection Program, which is under consideration now, as well as federal and state emissions regulations.  As you can tell from this short list, we do direct action as well as legislative advocacy.

We are looking for organizations and older individuals who would like to learn more about what we do and would consider joining us as members or/and collaborating with us on climate actions.  To that end, I'd like to invite you all personally to attend our virtual November meeting this Thursday, November 11 at 7:00 p.m.   This meeting is all about getting to know each other and finding out how we can mutually support one another's work.
