This is our monthly meeting to conduct business and plan for the month ahead. We discuss the latest environmental happening in SE Michigan and decide how to turnout and the best strategy to protect the planet we all enjoy. Everybody is welcome. We will meet in the Premium Electric Building. This month we will discuss the proposal to build a new gas plant in Dearborn and the pollution it will create along with how to move Oakland County to 100% renewables. We will also celebrate our recent victory stopping coal ash pollution in the Great Lakes.

This month’s theme is energy justice. As DTE Energy prepares to raise ALL our rates and build a natural gas plant, we’re planning to make sure environmental justice and communities of color are heard in the process. These communities often spend more on their energy bills than others and will bear the most impacts of climate change. Renewable energy is the only path forward to ensure long-term success and affordability. Also on the agenda: meeting with our local representatives, updates on cities moving to 100% renewable energy (including an exciting update), and much more! New or seasoned volunteers, come on down to our monthly meeting and learn about what’s happening with energy in your community.

SEMG Membership Meeting Elks Lodge, 2401 E. 4th St., Royal Oak, MI (at corner of 4th St. & SB I-75 Service Drive, South of 11 Mile Rd.) Regular Sierra Club SEMG Membership meeting, 1st Thursday, monthly. This is the follow-up film made by Josh Fox's award-winning documentary feature GASLAND. The new film continues to explore the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. It shows both how dangerous the practice is and how pervasive the gas industry's influence on public policy has become. Tempered by Fox's trademark dark humor, the film shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most divisive environmental issues facing our nation today. Open to the public; any interested person can attend. 6:30-7:00 Snacks, socializing 7:00-7:10 Announcements 7:10 Presentation
