The 2022 mid-terms represented a critical moment when voters were able to express the level of their concern by electing candidates who acknowledge the climate crisis and commit to action.
The November SOCAN general public meeting program will be devoted to exploring the results of the 2022 election and assessing how they influence local, state, and national efforts to address the climate crisis. In Oregon, the Governorship and both chambers remain in the control of those concerned about the climate crisis. The view from the State Capitol will be presented by Oregon House District 5 Representative Pam Marsh while SOCAN co-facilitator Alan Journet will provide comments on local and federal possibilities.
In addition, in response to frequent requests from SOCAN volunteers and program attendees for help in talking with friends and relatives who are skeptical about climate science, we have arranged a program to do just that. Warren Kahn, senior trainer for the More To Life international educational non-profit foundation and presenter of a two part workshop to be held in January 2023, will introduce this special offering.
