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. Scott Jackson sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com *Join us for the Minn-Dakota CCL Regional Conference, January 24 to 26, 2014 at Macalester College in St Paul * Our Citizens Climate Lobby Regional (MN, ND, SD) Conference is scheduled for Friday, January 24 through Sunday, January 26th at Macalester College in St. Paul.
