Throughout the first 100 days in office, the People's Climate Movement is organizing a country-wide arc of action, culminating on April 29th in Washington DC in a powerful mobilization to unite all of our movements.

The new administration has attacked the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more. We've fought back with a wave of protests larger than at almost any other point in history — let's make sure that we mark the 100th day of his presidency with another mass action that stands up for our communities. With everything at stake, everyone has a role to play, whether you’ve been marching for decades or you’re coming out for the first time. Join us on April 29th at 12pm ET at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History 315 E. Warren Ave, Detroit, MI 48201. Sign-up to let us know you're planning to be there. Let's march together!

This meeting will feature a three-person panel with deep practical experience of solar power in Michigan. The Michigan Chapter of the Sierra Club is partnering with Michigan Solar Solutions, Solar Winds and McNaughton-McKay Electric Company to help Michigan Sierra Club members and supporters make their homes solar-powered! The partnership means these carefully vetted, qualified, residential solar-power installers and providers of the highest quality solar products can help move you into the clean energy column. Read more at https://sierrasemg.wordpress.com/your-own-solar-power/. Mark Ferda works at McNaughton-McKay Electric and brings to the panel expert knowledge of price and availability of solar panels, inverters and all the other components needed for a successful home and small business setup. Mark Hagerty represents Michigan Solar Solutions, which has some years of experience planning and executing solar installations. Mark Clevey is a member of the Ann Arbor energy Commission and the founder of the Ann Arbor Solar Users Network. His particular interest is in how local registration and licensing can either help or unnecessarily hinder solar panel installations. Each panelist will make a 15-20 minute presentation, and then the floor will be open for questions from the audience. Regular Sierra Club SEMG Membership meeting, 1st Thursday, monthly. Open to the public; any interested person can attend. 6:30-7:00 Snacks, socializing 7:00-7:10 Announcements 7:10 Presentation

Dan Zak, Washington Post reporter and author of "Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age" will speak about a trio of peace activists who infiltrated the "Fort Knox of Uranium" in 2012 to protest the existence of nuclear weapons. Their arrest, trial, imprisonment, and release is a moral thriller. They drew attention to the costly military-industrial complex that stockpiles deadly nukes. Zak asks, "What if they had been terrorists?" Why do the U.S. and Russia still have enough nuclear weaponry to destroy planet earth many times over?" So, how can we counter the greatest, immediate modern-day threat to humanity and the planet?
