    I rsvp’d for the climate march in Kalamazoo next month, but the map you showed does not indicate where in Kalamazoo people are going to meet, and I need a destination point with basic directions. Please advise. Susan Barker

    Hey, MICAN.


    I put this list together for Lansing 350’s e-mail list/Google group. Thought you might be interested. It pertains to the Lansing area, specifically.


    Hey folks. Here we’ve put together a list of events that relate to climate and climate action in the area (or being promoted by orgs in the area) that you might be interested in, going up to June 13th. Of course you don’t have to go to all of them, and some might be more pertinent to your tastes than others. But here’s the list that we have at the moment.


    3/13 – Shut Down Enbridge Line 5 Rally — https://www.facebook.com/events/263876067373992 . 7:30 AM – 10 PM, 7109 W Saginaw Hwy, Lansing MI 48917-1120, USA


    3/14 – Ready for 100% East Lansing Meeting — https://sierra.secure.force.com/events/details?id=70131000001Dzv8AAC&formcampaignid=70131000001E04ZAAS . 6 PM, Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Rd East Lansing MI 48823 E-mail Andrew Sarpolis at andrew.sarpolis@sierraclub.org if you can’t make it to this meeting and/or want to find out more about what went down at the Lansing meeting, how you can help, where to go from here, etc.


    3/16 – State Energy Legislation overview — 5:30 – 6:30 PM, Michigan Energy Options, 405 Grove St., East Lansing MI, by GLREA policy chair Sarah Mulkoff. Our guess is that this will get wonky.


    3/16 – PCM Planning Meeting — https://actionnetwork.org/events/lansing-350-climate-march-planning-meeting?source=direct_link . 7 PM, Schuler Books & Music in Eastwood Town Center. This one is being put on by us. We’ll likely sort out details for how to get to DC, what we’ll do from now until then, how we’ll get people to sister marches if they don’t want to go to DC, etc. Ideal would be to get as many people to DC as possible. : P


    3/16 – Lansing Citizens Climate Lobby meeting. 7-9 PM Jacqueline Stewart’s house, 852 Lantern Hill Dr., East Lansing, MI. I think they want you to listen to a conference call recording before you show up here, if you show up. Dunno if the recording’s up on the web, yet, though. The PCM planning meeting for us should take priority over this meeting, but we just wanted folks to know about this, at least.


    3/16 – Merchants of Doubt (movie about how climate denial has been sown) showing — https://www.facebook.com/groups/308322749570368/permalink/324609397941703/?comment_id=324636427939000┬Čif_t=group_comment_reply┬Čif_id=1489350374985354 . 8 PM, Hedrick House, MSU. Again, the PCM Planning Meeting should take precedence to this, but we wanted folks to know that it was happening.


    3/25 – America Divided will be screened from 1-3 PM at Mission Union Baptist Church. This showing is being offered by a group called Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation, and is supported by the Kellogg Foundation, also sponsored by One Love Global. This isn’t strictly climate-related, but in the interest of intersectionality of issues, Anna brought this to our attention. We will be more likely to achieve what we want to see in the world by bringing what we know into other spaces (and helping others out with their problems).


    3/25 – Lansing 350 Monthly Meeting — https://www.facebook.com/events/1921841358046151/ . 4-5 PM, downtown Lansing CADL library. Here we will meet, talk a bit about how the PCM Planning Meeting went, see where we need to go from here, if anything’s changed, updates, etc. If you want to add any items to the agenda, please let us know.


    3/30 – Before the Flood (movie) showing — 7 PM Hannah Community Center. $7 tickets, $5 for seniors, free for students.


    4/8 – Moving Congress to Yes on Climate Solutions — 9 AM – 12 PM is free, the rest of the day is $22 (it’s a full day event, lunch is included.) It’s free for students. Hannah Community Center.


    4/20 – LBW&L Community Solar Update — 5:30 – 6:30 PM, Michigan Energy Options. An update on the status of the 300 kW solar project in Burcham Park.


    4/22 – March for Science Lansing — https://www.facebook.com/events/985534291591681/ . 1 – 4 PM, Michigan State Capitol, 110 N Capitol Ave, Lansing, Michigan 48933. We can use this rally to prime people up (even further than we already would have by this point) to go to the People’s Climate March the next week. And to march for science, too, and make sure climate has an even bigger presence there.


    4/29 – The People’s Climate March— https://peoplesclimate.org/ . This will be in DC. Those who can’t make it/don’t want to go to DC we can send to other marches in the Midwest (Chicago, Traverse City, etc., wherever seems best for you.) But the goal is to get as many to DC as we can.


    5/11 – Battery Options for PV — 5:30 – 6:30 PM. Michigan Energy Options. Solar would be so good, but the sun’s not always shining and there aren’t good enough options for storage! This presentation will explore that concern, and my guess is that it will ultimately completely delegitimize said concern. (Aside from batteries intended specifically for solar storage that exist today, electric water heaters and electric vehicles can serve as solar energy batteries, as well. And reduced energy demand, increased energy efficiency should help, too. [This is just what the author of this e-mail thinks they know on this issue, and might not be fully comprehensive.])


    6/11-6/13 – International Citizens Climate Lobby Conference in D.C. If you’re interested in this, let us know and we can connect you to the person who can give you more information on that.

    I have an idea event to protect our great lakes, but it’s a biggy – I mean REALLY big! We line the shores of land and water of the Great Lakes in a great show of unity that crosses state lines, party lines and national lines….It would take place July 3rd starting at 10 A.M. We call it “All Hands on Deck”. Along with the press we hope to receive we hope to bring attention to legislation we want to take place to protect the great lakes which is a global treasure. Any takers? Join our discussion page below and help make this important event take off!

    Hello, I am working with the DAPJN to create a list of Peace groups in Michigan. I am looking for a contact person, a phone number and an email address.

    Hi, my name is Agnes Robakiewicz. I recently started a 350 chapter for the Detroit metro area and we would love to collaborate on any current and future campaigns. We’re particularly interested in expanding Michigan’s renewable energy network and encouraging our elected representatives to put a price on greenhouse gases. I participated in the conference call regarding the Peoples Climate Movement march in Washington, DC on April 29th. Detroit 350 would love to collaborate on organizing buses to DC, as well as forming a local march in Detroit

    My granddaughter Caitlyn Thomasson, who lives in Santa Rosa, Ca., has joined your group and has asked me to join it also. I am Mary Wickwire and I live in Ludington, MI. So I will do that.

    Thanks for all your work for a healthy Michigan environment. I have been following our new District One Rep, Jack Bergman. He does not have the same environmental concerns that we share. If you could share your good work with him and the concerns of his constituents, I would greatly appreciate it. I am also calling him with my concerns.

    I"m not sure if you’ve seen the Indivisible Guide indivisibleguide.com

    I am going to the Women’s March in Lansing and will have a sign-up sheet for people who’d like to

    get involved. The area of top priority to me (others will work on other issues/causes) is the environment.

    Even if there isn’t any policy in the works right now, we could schedule a visit to our rep’s office to say

    “why aren’t you doing anything about this?”
