The record-breaking storms Harvey and Irma, which devastated Texas and Florida, are a warning that the predicted effects of climate change are already occurring. Detroit area groups concerned about the increasingly severe effects of climate change on those Detroit citizens already impacted by environmental injustice, want to know how city leaders are planning for the threats of climate change. Consequently, these seven groups are cosponsoring a candidate discussion with the theme of Moving Detroit Forward – Advancing Environmental Justice in a Changing Climate. This event takes place 6 PM to 8:30 PM on October 5, 2017 (Thursday evening) at the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium on the campus of Wayne State University Law School. It will consist of separate panels for the candidates for mayor and the candidates for city council-at-large. Each session will start with opening comments followed by questions from the sponsoring organizations. The groups sponsoring this forum are: Wayne State University Political Science Student Association; Wayne State University College Democrats; Detroit NAACP and the Michigan State Conference NAACP; Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice/Detroit Climate Action Collaborative (DWEJ/DCAC); People’s Water Board; Sierra Club Michigan Chapter; Citizens’ Climate Lobby – Detroit chapter (lead organizer).

You are invited to our next meeting on Thursday March 17 at 6pm at the Cass Corridor Commons, 4605 Cass Ave, Detroit, Michigan 48201. A Facebook event for the meeting is at https://www.facebook.com/events/1581177885539695/ Please RSVP, share and invite your friends. CCL has over 300 volunteer led chapters, including 10 in Michigan. Our chapters work in concert to advocate for carbon fee and dividend legislation, http://citizensclimatelobby.org/carbon-fee-and-dividend/. This legislation would: * Levy a steadily rising federal fee on fossil fuels at the source: mine, well, or port of entry. * Distribute all revenues to U.S. households on an equitable basis as a monthly dividend check, offsetting higher energy costs for most American families. * Include a border tariff adjustment to discourage businesses from relocating where they can emit more C02. This will also encourage other nations to adopt equivalent carbon pricing. At our meeting we will be discussing our Citizens Climate Lobby actions and plan for our in-district meetings with our US Representatives. I hope to see you there.
