This is a reminder that we’ll have our monthly EcoFaith PCEF cohort meeting this coming Saturday, April 14th from 8:30-9:45AM at First Unitarian Church. We’ll have an abbreviated monthly cohort meeting, then you’re welcome to attend the Frontline Communities on Environmental and Climate Justice: A Just Transition event from 10AM-12PM at First Unitarian’s Eliot Center.

Join us in person at First Unitarian Church (room B310) or via Zoom ( for our EcoFaith PCEF cohort meeting. Enter off SW 12th Ave between Main and Salmon. Take a right for Buchan Hall, then up to the third floor via stairs or elevator. You can see our agenda on Basecamp as we share in our practices, share ideas about signature gathering and discuss the support that we’ll need during our signature gathering efforts. (Let us know if you need help joining our Basecamp group.)

The campaign volunteer organizers are asking for donations of reusable shopping bags. Please bring any reusable, long-handled shopping bags (not paper) to our meeting to donate for the signature gathering kits. Or you can bring one when you pick up your kit at a date yet to be determined.
