Community Conversation – Oct 14 7:00pm

Community Conversation:
Climate Change Solutions for Minnesota

Tuesday, October 14, 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Carondelet Village, 525 Fairview Ave. S.

Featured Guest: J. Drake Hamilton, Science Policy Director for Fresh Energy

Dave wants your input. Climate change is going to increase extreme weather events, diminish air quality, and change habitat — among other effects — in ways that will have an impact on food, recreation and health for all Minnesotans. As your next state representative, Dave wants to know what you think we should be doing to address the threat posed by climate change. Guest J. Drake Hamilton will get us grounded in the facts and help lead our conversation about solutions for Minnesota.

RSVP at rsvp@davepinto.com, the campaign Facebook page, or just show up!

We’re looking forward to the conversation!
The Pinto Campaign Team

Community Conversations are a series of participatory discussions among Dave Pinto, leaders in the field — and YOU! Our goal is to learn more about compelling issues and work toward identifying what we can and should do about them. Please feel free to invite neighbors and friends as well.
