What's Going On with Tucson CCL

Next Regular Meeting
Saturday, October 14, 2017 9:30 - 11:30 AM.

Citizens Climate Lobby's main goal is to engage all sorts of people in seeking solutions to the global threat of climate change.  As CCL looks to build relationships across race and culture, our October guest is Barbara Love, Professor Emeritus of Social Justice Education at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. She taught graduate classes on the foundations of social justice education, design development and facilitation skills.  That understanding will have paramount value in bringing awareness to our community of the need for rebalancing the costs and benefits of greenhouse-gas emissions.

Tucson's CCL chapter's meeting place:
Room 8403 at Banner/UMC Hospital  at 1501 N Campbell Ave.
Directions: Park in the main parking lot and bring your ticket for validation.  Enter the hospital through the front door, and take the main elevators to the 8th floor. Exit the elevators to the west (away from the clinic), turn left and go through the double doors to Rm 8403.

We meet the second Saturday of each month, same place, 9:30 - 11:30 AM.
