While Washington D.C. slides backward, local governments are taking the lead and stepping up to the enormous challenge before us. Council Member D’Lynda Fischer will walk us through the role of City Government in tackling the climate crisis.
Learn more about:
- Petaluma’s Climate Emergency Resolution and the formation of our Climate Action Commission.
- The work of our Zero Wast Committee and the Pesticide Work Group.
- The role of the Council, our City Manager and staff, how policy is made and what role the Climate Commission will play.
Then she’ll turn to the audience to engage in a discussion about what is possible.
CLIMATE CHATS are brought to you free by WORK Petaluma. Donations are welcome. 🙂
Join us from 12 -1 PM on Friday, October 4th at 10 4th Street, Petaluma.
D’Lynda Fischer’s Bio:
I moved to Petaluma five years ago charmed by the immediate access to farm fresh food, the active bicycle culture, the historic downtown on the river, and the easy exchanges I experienced meeting people on the street when walking my dog.
Disheartened by the actions being taken in Washington and empowered by the many other women in this country taking political office and seeking affirmative change, I chose also to participate in the political process.
During my long career as an urban planner I had the opportunity to represent my community on the Planning Commission. My current role as a volunteer board member of the United States Green Building Council Redwood Chapter provides me the platform to integrate my ideals about the built environment and environs in our county.
Many local residents know me as the former Operations Manager for Daily Acts. Today, I work as an executive team member of the nonprofit Bionutrient Food Association (BFA), whose mission is “to increase quality in the food supply.” From my work, I know that creating affirmative change in our complex environment is an ongoing process – a marathon, not a sprint. My work inspires me every day to make that change a reality.
