Hello clean-air-and-climate friends: Please join us on Zoom (link available via email) from 7-7:40pm MT every other Wednesday night: W Aug 10, W Aug 24, 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 February 17 to November 22, 2023. (Mark your calendars, and follow the previous link if you’re new to the campaign and want to get caught up!)

Plan: At this Wednesday’s meeting we’ll have a presentation about the 7 districts north of SLC from Casey Hansen (with research help from Jack Podolsky and Ronan Carrier). This is the 4th and final set of districts, so after this we will work on putting it all together for 2023!

People: We’re thrilled to announce support from Elders Rising for Intergenerational Justice. Other Friends of the Campaign include the Mormon Environmental Stewardship Alliance (MESA), Utah Physicians for a Health Environment (UPHE), Running Up for Air, and IME Utah. Thanks to Dave Carrier for leading up this outreach effort, and please help us get other Friends!

In the news: Jan recommends this City Weekly article about the show Air at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. And if you’re looking for some insights on the federal climate bill (the Inflation Reduction Act), the environmental economics think tank Resources For the Future is hosting a webinar this Wednesday, Aug 10, from 11am-12:15pm MT.
