|The Green New Deal is gaining momentum and we want to get the word out! On Saturday July 6, you are invited to the People's Picnic for a Green New Deal! We will have a potluck picnic followed by a canvassing training.
From 2-5 PM we will:
2. Share the draft of a local Green New Deal platform (created from the Town Hall red lines and green lines activity)
3. Get ready to canvass the heck out of Greater Victoria!
We need to build the kind of social movement that makes history and to do that we need to get hundreds of new people inspired and involved in a just transition off of fossil fuels. Even if canvassing isn't your jam, come anyway. We will support you, you can practice talking about the Green New Deal with family and friends, and we'll also need help with tasks like data-entry and eating the snacks.
When: Saturday, July 6, 2019 at 2 pm – 5 pm
Where: Beacon Hill Park, near the playground and the Arbutus Way Parking lot. When you get to this area, follow the signs and look for our banner!
This is a low-pressure potluck: we will also bring food. We'll provide paper for you to label your ingredients in case of allergies. Please bring your own tupperware and mugs to help us reduce waste.
Kids are welcome and we will be running kid-friendly activities during the canvass training!
This picnic takes place on Meegan, stewarded since time immemorial by Lekwungen people.
Get in touch at [email protected] with any questions. Hope to see you there!
