VICTORIA, BC - Two local groups of the national For Our Kids network of parents and grandparents committed to taking action to address the climate crisis are hosting a town hall on Green and Just Recovery this Thursday.
Victoria Virtual Town Hall: Green & Just Recovery
  • When and where: Thurs., Sept. 24th, 3:30pm-5pm, online via zoom
  • Panel: Adam Olsen, MLA Saanich North and the Islands; T’Souke Nation Chief Gordon Planes; and Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps
  • Event moderator: Tamara Napoleon

“As our governments shift focus from pandemic response to economic recovery, I want our elected officials to put our kids at the forefront of their decision-making. How they direct huge stimulus money... is critical to our children’s quality of life and our ability to address the climate crisis. My children’s future is my motivation to get involved in organizing these town halls. I want to ensure we will rebuild a sustainable and just society rather than further entrench the climate destruction and injustices that pre-dated Covid-19. We can't waste this huge opportunity to turn things around with a Green and Just Recovery.” - Erin Renwick, Parents 4 Climate mom

“Grandparents have a unique responsibility to do everything we can to leave a safe, healthy world behind to not only our own grandkids, but to all the grandkids. That’s why parents and grandparents are coming together through the For Our Kids network to support each other in a call for action on the climate crisis. With the BC election in October and a possible federal election, now is the time to remind politicians of all parties that we need a Green & Just Recovery, and we need it right now. ” - Kathryn Molloy, For Our Grandkids Victoria grandma.
