with George Lakey
January 24th – January 26th, 2020
As young people go on strike, demand divestment from fossil fuels, and urge a Green New Deal, we invite Friends and others motivated to open a dialogue facilitated by George Lakey on how to effectively communicate across generations and communities to tackle the issues caused by climate change.
Our goal is to affirm strengths, differences, and build unity around effective actions. We encourage Meetings to send younger members to this event and we have reduced fees for Friends 35 and under.
