Here's the latest update on the Minn-Dakota CCL Regional Conference, yet
another opportunity to get up off the couch and put your body where your
mouth is. This seems particularly appropriate for 'Cecilia's Crew' of
legislative activists.

Too bad this falls on the same weekend as the Forum on Race, Climate and
Community Health at the Wellstone Center. I plan to attend one or the
other, my final decision depending on whether anyone else (even just one
person) from CCC/EcoMinds has a hankering to go as well. Please let me know
if you are so inclined, so we can meet up and pool our opportunities to
learn and act.
