Join us on Wednesday, Jan 31st for a Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance Live Event watch party in Lincolnshire. Meet others in our community who want to organize to build local power and take climate action. Find out what we can do to begin to build the Fossil Free future we need – and connect with folks from Northshore Indivisible and other activists equally passionate about this work. Please RSVP so we can send you updates and last-minute details.
What can we do to protect our environment in 2018? How do we keep up the fight for climate justice? How can our towns still make progress in the face of the Trump administration’s attacks? How do we organize for power outside the capital when the government shuts down?
We know the dangers this administration poses to people and our planet are immediate and real — but we don’t just want to resist Trump. We want to move past him, and rally like-minded people around the country to start building a Fossil Free world now, instead of just playing defense.
That’s why on Wednesday, January 31, the day after the State of the Union, we will come together for Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance.

Join us this Friday, August 18, for a Peace Rally in Solidarity with Charlottesville, taking place at Memorial Park (405 Prospect Avenue) in Highland Park at 6:00p.m.
The rally will give community members the opportunity to show solidarity with rejecting the white supremacist ideology that took over Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend.
It is imperative for all of us – community leaders, faith leaders and all residents – to speak out against racist and anti-Semitic ideology whenever and wherever it surfaces. Hatred and violence have no place in our communities, our state or our country.
In partnership with Consumers Union, North Shore Indivisible’s Camilla Dadey is holding a “How to Maintain a Sustainable Diet” workshop on August 27th at 2 pm. RSVP is requested.
Do you have “Ecoanxiety,” the feeling of dread and helplessness that come with “watching the slow and seemingly irrevocable impacts of environmental degradation?”
If you want to learn easy, actionable steps to help reduce food waste and gain a bit of control over the feeling of ecoanxiety, this workshop is for you.
Consumers Union, the policy and action division of Consumers Reports, is experimenting with a series of training workshops to help people like you think through important purchasing decisions. Camilla has been working with Consumers Union experts to learn about strategies for making our diets more sustainable — good for us and good for the planet. This event will introduce the importance of eating sustainably and what we can do right away to adopt better food habits.
Will you join Camilla? RSVP by email to Camilla by August 22 to reserve your seat. Space is limited. firstname.lastname@example.org
When: Sunday, August 27, 2 – 3:30 pm
Where: Trinity United Church of Christ, 760 North Ave, Deerfield, IL 60015
