On Thursday, 4.12.18 the school boards of Kenwood School District (Sonoma County) and Twin Hills School Districts (Sebastopol, Sonoma County) both articulated the political will for common sense climate policies in order to protect current and future students.
Here's the Kenwood School District resolution:
I will post the Twin Hills one soon.
Thank you to the Kenwood school board members:
Thank you to the Twin Hills school board members:
Apparently, a troop of Girl Scouts showed up to the Twin Hills board meeting to advocate for the resolution. Go Girl Scouts! Way to be assertive and to advocate for your generation. Someday, you'll be able to proudly tell your grandkids about the time in elementary school when you were on the leading edge of the wave of youth climate activism that swept the nation and set us on a course towards a healthier, more prosperous, and more sustainable future. Let's all follow their lead!
