Next Monthly Meeting:  Thursday,  April 24, 2014, 7 PM
San José Peace and Justice Center

GUEST SPEAKER:  Steve Raney, Principal at Cities21 in Palo Alto (350.org volunteer), will speak on  "Strategies to Defeat Exxon/Koch: Politics of Federal Climate Legislation". 

Outline
1) Political strategies to enact strong federal climate legislation within 36 months (in the face of the overwhelming political power of the fossil fuel industry).
2) Strategies of 350.org, Citizens Climate Lobby, and Environmental Defense.
3) Professor Erica Chenoweth’s dataset of past international citizen movements shows that when 3.5% of a country’s population (11 million pro-climate Americans) is actively involved in a movement, 80% of those movements achieve their objectives. 


--------------------


Our primary foci currently are (a) environment, including 350.org, and (b) universal health care.  We are also involved in many other things including citizen-funded elections and news, without which progress on any other issue is virtually impossible






Monthly Meetings
We usually meet on the fourth Thursday of the month at the San Jose Peace Center at 7:30 pm with informal discussions at 7 pm. The San Jose Peace Center is at 48 South 7th Street in San Jose between Santa Clara and San Fernando Streets.
