Dear Ojai Indivisible Activists

We’d like to thank each and every one of you for your patience, persistence and dedication through our group’s growing pains, as we have worked to find our footing and voice in the past several months. As a local group formed under the national Indivisible organization, we are committed to using action oriented tactics to work for democratic and progressive ideals.

We are forming a new, experienced leadership team that is working to create a new structure to better manage the group. Our goal is to operate with transparency and input from our members, which will allow us to better support each other and have fun doing it. We will be reaching out in the days and weeks ahead, and will clearly communicate changes and next steps and keep everyone posted as our new structure evolves.

We will not be holding a meeting in June, but invite you to join us in carrying the Ojai Indivisible banner through the streets in the July 4th Ojai Independence Day parade! We will proudly join the other local peace and environmental groups in participating in this important celebration. Please meet us at 9:00am behind Matilija Junior High and wear red, white and blue. We are also planning a social event over the summer.

The energy of Ojai Indivisible is powerful. Please continue to share actions with the group and stay tuned! Thanks for standing Indivisible with us!

Ojai Valley Grange, 381 Cruzero St.

Topic:

The chapter’s Environment group will host a presentation

Featured Speakers:

Sasha Kramer, a PhD student in Marine Science working with the Earth Research Institute at the University of California Santa Barbara; and James Hines, from the Los Padres Chapter of the Sierra Club.

A combination of inaction and obstruction on climate have led us to the point where the impacts are no longer avoidable–we can no longer bury our heads in the sand. Rather, we must now adapt to the “new normal” by facing and acknowledging the impacts of climate change and alleviating these impacts through targeted environmental, social, and economic policies.” Sasha Kramer.

Our nation’s environment faces the greatest crises in our history as climate change protections are rolled back, America’s national parks and other public lands and ocean waters are opened up for oil drilling and coal mining and the federal endangered species is threatened with extinction by legislation currently before congress. We urge all citizens to join together to defend our wildlife and wild places and keep dirty energy in the ground.” James Hines.

There is a suggested $1 donation to pay for the venue.
