ECA-MASS Monthly chapter meeting Tuesday August 13, 11:30 - 2:30
We meet at The Beech Street Center , 266 Beech Street in Belmont, MA.
Plenty of on-site parking is available and the center is 0.3 miles from the intersection of Trapelo Rd and Beech Street on MBTA Bus Route 73.
We meet in the large and sunny, but air-conditioned Room 215 Classroom A at the end of the corridor. (details to participate remotely below*)
The first half hour we have time to set-up and for socializing with each other over our informal lunches if you want to bring something for yourself. We cannot share our usual delectable potluck lunches here at this time, but if you would like to bring finger- food-friendly dessert items which could be shared using only napkins, please do. Coffee and tea may be available for a modest price downstairs.
Then we start our meeting promptly at noon, this month featuring Launa Zimarro, the Co-Chair of the Environmental Action and Advocacy Committee for the League of Women Voters. LWV is a critically influential advocacy group and ECA is thrilled to work with them! DON"T MISS THIS CHANCE to learn more!
Launa Zimmaro has been a member of the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts (LWVMA) since 2008, joining shortly after retiring from a 35-year career as an elementary school educator and principal. Within the League, Launa works as the Legislative Specialist for Energy and Climate Change and co-chair of the LWVMA Environmental Action and Advocacy Committee (EAAC). She also serves on the national League Price on Carbon Committee for the past 5 years.
As an active member of the League, Launa has focused on climate change and the corrupting role of money in our political system as undermining action on a host of issues critical to the League’s mission: Empowering Voters - Defending Democracy.
Other state level positions include two terms as a member of the Massachusetts Sierra Club Chapter Executive Committee, an elected position she held for four years.
Launa’s presentation will include a brief overview of the League, current League priorities related to energy and climate change and options for collaboration with ECA.
We'll include other reports on recent events and previews too, and as usual, include time for lively discussion on ways YOU can support climate efforts in Your locale.
