The People’s Climate Action Day

Local activists are organizing a People’s Climate Action Day in Davis Central Park, Sunday, September 21, 2014, at the Farmers Market Pavilion behind the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame from 11:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. Organizers are hoping for a big turn out and lots of energy!

Organizers welcome residents of Davis and surrounding communities from all walks of life to gather and share their climate concerns. Participants are asked to attend via bus, train, bike, foot, scooter, electric cart, electric car, skateboard, hybrid, or carpool and to bring their own reusable water bottles. Signs and personal demonstrations welcome.

This gathering is in solidarity with organizers touting the largest climate march in history in New York City, dubbed The People’s Climate March, the same day.

Thank you for your incredible support.  We are making great strides in getting the word out about my campaign. I am tremendously grateful to all of you who have shared your time, your skills, and made financial donations. We would not have come this far without your help.

However, as the election draws nearer, we need your support more than ever.  We need you to get the word out about my campaign.  Please consider doing one or more of the following if you haven’t done so already:

  • Display a lawn sign!  Click here  or email me at and a member of the team will deliver one to your home or work address. Lawn signs are a fantastic way to show your support and make the public more aware of our campaign.
  • Walk a precinct. My team and I have been canvassing the neighborhoods sharing ideas and hearing the public’s views and concerns about Davis schools. We would love it if you would join us. Click here  and a member of the team will contact you about your availability.
  • Host a get-together in your home or neighborhood.  It would be wonderful to meet your friends and neighbors in person to discuss how Davis schools can best serve our children.  Click here or email me at 
  • It would be greatly appreciated if you would share and “Like” my campaign Facebook page  and share our website with your friends and family
  • Donate to the campaign.  Donations can be made here. All donations are welcome and are crucial to spreading the word.
