Be the Change: How Communities Take Their Power Back

Event held on Tuesday April 17th


At the Wellness Living Store

 

On this evening, Greg and Hollis will facilitate a discussion with Anneke Campbell. Anneke will be speaking on the book she co-wrote with the visionary lawyer Thomas Linzey, called “Be the Change”, about the work of five different communities who passed local laws returning to residents the right to decide what happens in their own homes and environments. There is currently a movement in Santa Monica to adopt a “Sustainability Bill of Rights”, which if passed, would give us the power to protect our environment and create a truly local and sustainable economy.
