Lunch & Learn with the League."Charter Schools" Guest Speaker: Dr. PK Difenbaugh, Superintendent of the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District, will discuss Charter Schools, their impact on local districts and how or if they meet the needs of elementary and secondary students. Do Charter Schools provide a real choice for parents? How is the Charter School the same or different than a private school?
League of Women Voters of Oakland is hosting a “Community Roundtable on: Climate Crisis in Oakland: What We Can Do” to help educate each other in this important topic that impacts all members of the community.
Our objective is to help educate each other in this important topic that impacts all members of the community. Environmental health is already a significant issue to families as evidenced by high asthma rates in both East and West Oakland. What do we understand about carbon tax or reforestation? What of plastic bags and plastic straws? What can we really do about it?
Join us for a discussion with Jeff Goby, environmentalist and scientist, who will introduce the game changing book “Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming".
“Like me,” says Goby, “you might feel confused about the best way to help, even guilty that you aren’t doing more and wondering if it’s just too late. I’m excited to share with you an approach to the issue that has given me optimism and focus. It’s a new way of engaging with global warming.”
