The final presentation in the Little Lakes Community Association’s Ecological Sustainability series will highlight how climate change is affecting us all. LLCA will be partnering with the Buffalo-Niagara and Canandaigua chapters of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby to co-host “Beyond Our Comfort Zone,” on Thursday, May 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 p. m. at the Little Lakes Community Center in Hemlock.
The recently produced hour-long documentary film, “Comfort Zone” will be shown, with a discussion following. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and to find out how you can become involved in citizen activism around the issue of climate change. The film shows what climate change means in our own back yards through the stories of three ordinary Americans confronting its effects – scientifically, economically, and personally – as the problem challenges our very sense of who we are.
The Citizens’ Climate Lobby mission is cited on its website (citizensclimatechangelobby.org): “CCL empowers everyday people to work together for climate change solutions. Our supporters are organized in more than 400 local chapters across the US. Together we’re building support in Congress for a national bipartisan solution to climate change.” The organization was founded in 2007, and currently has over 100,000 supporters. Its 2019 Conference and Media Event is scheduled for June 9 – 11 in Washington, D.C.
The event is free and open to everyone. Light refreshments will be available. For more information about LLCA, visit their website LittleLakesNY.org or Face Book page @Little Lakes.
