Thank you SRCS Board for passing a Commitment to Climate Change Action Resolution!
On Wednesday, 2.28.17 Santa Rosa City Schools became the 5th local school board to speak up for climate action in just 3 months. Sonoma County school board members are blazing a trail for school boards and school communities across the country. They are the 7th northern California school board to pass climate change resolutions since October.
School communities across the country----90,000 school board members, 3 million teachers, and 10's of millions of students and their families, can speak up for federal climate action to protect current and future students. Our organized, respectful, non-partisan, and patriotic call for federal climate action can break the logjam in DC. Republicans and Democrats can pass fair, effective, and common-sense climate policies.
Thank you Trustees Klose, Carle, Fong, Pugh, Kristof, Anderson, Sheffield and Mott, as well as Superintendent Kitamura!

We are having technical difficulties. In some video clips the discussion of the resolution starts at 3:00:03. In other video clips it starts at 3:10:00 or 3:15:00.
