Join your community on this national #WearOrange weekend to remember and honor victims and survivors of gun violence. Wear Orange on June 7, and post a pic on social media.
Then join us on June 9th for a community event, when together we commit to working to #EndGunViolence. The event includes a variety of special guest speakers -- including survivors, community organizers, and legislators -- an opportunity to contribute to a survivor remembrance wall, and information about community resources.

Monthly Meeting: Ann Arbor chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby.

  community member   < less CCL Logo

Worried about climate change? Wondering how you can make a real difference? Come to the monthly meeting of the Ann Arbor chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL). CCL is a national, grassroots organization working to enact federal legislation to put a price on CO2. It is the most focused and influential organization working on national climate policy. We are working to build support for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (, a fair and effective policy to reduce GHG emissions. Our meetings consist of dialing in to a national conference call (featuring different guest speakers each month), followed by local discussion of actions. Newcomers are welcome to come at 12:30 for a brief overview.
