We are comprised of climate activists who have been trained by The Climate Reality Project, as well as other concerned citizens who have joined our local chapter. Our mission is to amplify climate effort, plans and policy efforts in Thurston County through clear, powerful and inspiring communications.

Reinventing Power: America’s Renewable Energy Boom (the movie)
Audience: student (middle, high, college), adult
Description: Reinventing Power: America’s Renewable Energy Boom takes us across the country to hear directly from the people making our clean energy future achievable. These individuals are working to rebuild what’s broken, rethink what’s possible, and revitalize communities. These stories are proof that America does not need to choose between keeping our lights on and protecting our communities. Critically, Reinventing Power underscores the notion that we don’t have to sacrifice jobs for a clean environment. Supporting a clean energy future means building a better, more prosperous future for everyone. Over the film’s 50 minutes, you’ll meet people in eight states whose lives were changed by the renewable energy industry while exploring various aspects of the clean energy industry from innovation to installation. Short discussion after the movie led by Marianne Tompkins (optional).
