350 Austin April Open Meeting @ Wildflower Church: A Unitarian Universalist Congregation | Austin | Texas | United States

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN VENUE!
We’ve spent the last few months at 350 Austin stepping back to consider the big picture–how to strategize, organize, and campaign for local progress on climate change. Now it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work!

Join us at our April meeting for more details on the steps we are taking to make Austin Energy (AE) fossil free fast. Our public utility has the potential to be a model for the rapid and just transition of electric grids towards clean renewable energy. We must demand that Austin Energy meet that challenge.

Here is what to expect at the April meeting:
We’ll kick things off with an introduction to AE’s current status as well as where we want it to be. You will learn about the critical role of the Electric Utility Commission (EUC), and why one feasibility study is an important piece of the advocacy puzzle.

Then we’ll split into some breakout groups, where you’ll have an opportunity to get involved in direct advocacy at City Hall, learn more about what City Hall and Austin Energy and you all have to do with each other, and flex your creativity with some artful activism.

Agenda:

  • 6:30 pm Meet & Mingle
  • 7:00 pm  Al Braden & Stefan Wray: Introduction to the current status of AE and where we want them to be. Al and Stefan will also explain the important role of the Electric Utility Commission (EUC) in helping us move toward our goals for AE.
  • 7:20 pm Q&A
  • 7:30 pm Break-out groups:
    • Advocacy at the EUC, led by Stefan Wray.
    • “Power in Austin” led by Conti – a discussion on how to impact the levers of power in Austin.
    • Artistic expression for our Fossil Free Fast campaign (led by Martha Carleton).
  • 8:15 pm Announcements and pass the hat
  • 8:30 pm Adjourn and clean-up
