Hello clean-air-and-climate friends: We’re celebrating 10,000 valid signatures! See the detailed senate district breakdown below, and please join us on zoom (link via email) from 7-7:40pm MT every other Wednesday night: W June 14, W June 28, etc. All are welcome to a discussion of our campaign and our progress in qualifying for the Nov 2024 ballot by collecting 135,000 signatures by W Nov 22, 2023!

The 100 Club: Kudos to folks who have 100+ signatures (Casey, Di, and Joan G, joining Brynn M, JJ, and Jan K), to folks who have 250+ signatures (Karen D), to folks who have 500+ signatures (Dennis M, joining Lisa R), and to folks who have 1000+ signatures (Dave C and Yoram). There are over 30 others who are on the board and within reach of the 100 Club… and there’s room for you too!

Signature-gathering opportunities: Check out the Guide to Gathering Signatures and this 2-pager with instructions for signature gatherers, and then click on the links below for event calendars; experienced volunteers have added their names and contact info in red to events they’re going to attend, so reach out to them if you want to join them! (Or try to add a Comment on the calendar, or email us at info@DarnAir.org.)  No experience necessary, we will provide training and materials, email us at info@DarnAir.org with questions!

Tales from the Trails: Jan K writes that at Sandy Amphitheater she got “48 signatures in an hour. Anywhere people are captive in a line waiting is the absolute BEST for signature gathering. I walk down the line and many say ‘I’ll sign’. It’s all pretty easy. GIVE US MORE LINES!”  As requested, there are lots of lines in the events highlighted above!  

In the news: The Arctic could be ice-free in the summer as early as the 20230s according to new studies discussed on PBS and in the NYT. And CNN has “Move to electric vehicles could save nearly 90,000 lives in US by 2050, study says”, about this American Lung Association study.
