Climate Change Training

January 10, 2015, 12:00 PM2:50 PM

We would like to invite you to join us for a short training with all the climate change groups in the greater Waterville area (the Colby student group, 350 Central Maine, Citizen’s Climate Lobby, the Sustain Mid Maine Climate Change Public Policy committee, NRCM, Sierra Club) to create a rapid mobilization team for actions.  This team will not be a new group, and it will not meet regularly.  Rather, this will be a combined group that could be called upon by any of the existing groups whenever action is needed (for example,  when Congress votes on the Keystone XL pipeline early in 2015, when a divestment event occurs at Colby or when any of our groups meet with elected representatives).

  • When:   Saturday, January 10 from 12:00 to 2:50
  • Where: Waterville Public Library in the Colby Program Room
  • Why:     To pool our numbers and increase our effectiveness when needed.
  • What:   Initially, we’ll prepare for vigils in January when Congress or Obama act regarding the Keystone XL Pipeline.

We’d like to have a big group for our action team, so please invite a couple of your friends to join you at this training.  The key to getting people to attend and feel good about it is to talk to friends face to face if possible and make a personal invitation.   This should be a time to enjoy an activity with your friends.

Tentative Schedule:

  • 12:00-12:10 Introductions
  • 12:10-12:50  Read Brugger is going to lead a training for the rapid mobilization Team.
  • 12:50-1:00   We’ll enjoy each other’s company during a brief break.  Please bring your own beverage & snack if desired.
  • 1:00-2:50     If you are willing, please stay and receive additional Credo training to take part in a more intense kind of demonstration at which a few of us would be arrested for a non-violent action such as blocking a door.  We would need many participants who would not risk arrest and who would play important support roles.  We would only do this Credo action if Obama permits the northern leg of the Keystone pipeline to be built.

We hope you’ll join us for this important event.

Sincerely,

Dick Thomas and Linda Woods, co-leaders of the 350 Central Maine group, members of the Sustain Mid Maine Public Policy Team, and the Winslow based Citizen’s Climate Lobby group
