Seattle Fellowship of Reconciliation presents Chris Covert-Bowlds on

Supporting the Clean Air Clean Energy climate change voter initiative

All are welcome!  Free, an offering will be taken.  Info 206-789-5565 or wwfor@wwfor.org or https://forseattle.wordpress.com/

We have already seen the consequences of a changing climate: last summer, smoke from wildfires hung thick in the air.  Taking action on climate will yield immediate health benefits, but we must act quickly.

I-1631, the Clean Air Clean Energy voter initiative, needs all hands on deck to gather voter signatures.  Chris Covert-Bowlds hopes to inspire others to join in this effort.  We have 12 weeks to gather over 300,000 signatures from Washington voters. With your help, we can do it!  Anyone of any age can gather signatures.

I-1631 will create local jobs by investing in clean energy, healthy forests, clean air, energy, and water. We can accelerate Washington state’s transition to clean energy, increasing the resiliency of our state’s waters and communities to the impacts of climate change, with a carbon dioxide emissions fee on the state’s largest corporate polluters.  This initiative was developed by a coalition of over 200 groups, including organized labor, environmental advocates, communities of color, faith communities, sovereign tribes and many others.

Chris Covert-Bowlds is a family doctor at the Kaiser Permanente Northgate clinic.  He is Co-chair of St Patrick’s Catholic Church Social Justice committee and is a member of Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility Climate Change Task Force. Climate Change
