Please join us at on Zoom (link available via email) from 7-7:40pm MT every other Wednesday night: W Nov 30, W Dec 14, etc. All are welcome! We’ll talk about the Four P’s—Policy, Plan, Purchasing Power, and People—as we prepare to qualify for the Nov 2024 ballot by collecting signatures from F Feb 17 to W Nov 22, 2023. (Mark your calendars, and follow the previous link if you’re new to the campaign and want to get caught up!)
Call for district leaders: We are searching for volunteers to serve as district leaders for the campaign. District leaders will help organize teams of signature-gathering volunteers in individual senate districts across Utah. The signature gathering period will run from mid-February through mid-November of 2023; active recruitment of signature gathering volunteers will begin in earnest in January 2023. To qualify for the ballot we need to hit a statewide target (about 150,000 valid signatures) as well as targets of about 5,000 valid signatures in 26 of the 29 state senate districts. This is an opportunity to play a leadership role in the campaign and to take action against air pollution and climate change. Now is the time to join our team! If you are interested in learning more, please contact Dave Carrier at carrier.dave *at* gmail.com or 385-227-7235.
Calendar update: Feedback is welcome (on our Wednesday zoom call or via email) on the structure and content of this detailed draft calendar for the 8 districts north of SLC. We would love to incorporate your feedback as we work to finalize this calendar and three others (for the 5 districts south of Provo, the 7 central districts west of the I-15 spine, and the 9 central districts east of the I-15 spine).
