Presentation Made at Program Planning on 1/25/2020

Final Wording of Recommendation Submitted to LWV of US:

Making Democracy Work© must include work on solutions to the climate crisis that are responsive to equity and climate justice. The lack of clean air and water, reduced access to safe healthy food, increased illness, and dislocation or death from extreme weather events affect everyone.  Democracy only works when all of its citizens have a voice at the table and are assured of a safe, sustainable, and healthy environment in which to live and contribute.  - LWV of Orange Coast 

Passed by unaminous vote of members attending Program Planning on January 25, 2020.
