WHAT IS ECRA??

The former Climate Action Study Group and Speed and Scale Reading Group will now be one group where we meet on first and third Saturdays for two hours (10am to 12 pm) at the Starbucks Conference room, 5906 Summitview Ave, Yakima, WA 98908.  We plan to meet in person unless the group decides to switch to zoom because of COVID changes or weather.  The group will be called the Environment and Climate Reading and Action (ECRA) group.   Meetings for November through January have been scheduled at the Starbucks conference room:

  • November 5, 10:30 to 12:30 (this is the only date we could not reserve the room until 10:30.  We recommend coming at 10, ordering a drink and visiting with other members of the group!)
  • November 19, 10:00 to 12:00
  • December 3, 10:00 to 12:00
  • NO MEETING THE SECOND SATURDAY OF DECEMBER
  • January 7, 10:00 to 12:00
  • January 21, 10:00 to 12:00

We will discuss relevant articles and books (the reading discussion will be the first part of the meeting) and then talk about actions we can take to make an impact locally in the second part of the meeting.   This is a self-led group – no leader.

This group is open to all interested members, volunteers, donors, active in YSNN.  If. You have been participating in the group you will get an invitation.  Along with the invitation will be the reading for that meeting.  New members should contact Chrissy Schott to join the group.

On November 5 and 19 we will read the Climate and Health Washington 2022 Report by the Physicians for Social Responsibility;

November 5— Sections 1, 2, and 3

November 19, Executive Summary, Sections 4, 5 and Conclusion.

Thanks to Diana Rhodes of this suggestion!  Mary Lou
