Bi-Annual General 350 SoFlo Meeting
In this meeting, we introduced 350 South Florida and the work we do, to new members! We broke out into working groups where people chose to work in what resonates with them and what they're most passionate about. This enabled them to connect with like-minded people and collaborate to make a great and effective impact!
Our working Groups:
1. Political/Elections group. – Green New Deal, endorsing climate candidates and legislation
2. Local Environmental Issues – Turkey Point, Everglades, Coral reefs, beach clean-ups.
3. Individual actions (greening, vegan, recycling) and education.
4. Youth Leadership and Climate Strikes. (for activists of all ages and backgrounds)
We had our amazing guest speakers!
> Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava: announced she was running for Mayor of Miami-Dade County. Deeply concerned by the prosperity gap, threat of sea level rise, and widespread distrust in County government, she set out to be #AMayorWhoCares about these and many other pressing issues facing our County.
> BlueWave Coalition: Is a grassroots coalition, working hard to renew our democracy and our constitution for the people. With citizens like yourself, we are one of our country's most dedicated pro-democracy groups.
Finally, we collectively develop an impactful vision and strategy for this upcoming election year! We had elections of our by-laws amendment and board member. We solidified upcoming events, strikes and actions moving forward.
