Our training will share:
1. Sebastopol Union's Climate Change Resolution

3. Steps to engaging and empowering school board members to speak up for climate justice;
4. Multiple benefits of school board climate change/climate justice resolutions;
5. School board climate change/climate justice resolution ideas;

7. Q and A
We're hoping to help Sebastopol Union School District's great example start a snowball effect. There are 10,000 school boards in the nation with over 50,000 school board members. These school board members are the only elected leaders with a singular focus on well-being and future success of children. We can empower them to speak up for climate action and climate justice! This will help build public will to enact science-based climate policies which will protect current and future students.
