Here’s the September 2017 issue of SVCAN. This is your source of good news about climate-saving progress being made on many levels...Personal, Local/City, Regional, State, National and International. Thanks to the dedication and work of thousands of volunteers across our nation and in the Silicon Valley, we continue to move the climate movement agenda forward in the U.S. against the power, money and influence of the fossil fuel industry.

We’ve included several “what you can do” suggestions and our goal in sending this information to you is to increase that list of climate volunteers and activists. Happy reading from the SVCAN staff.

Please, as before, forward this issue to all your lists with a request for further distribution to whole groups. Readers can subscribe to the SVCAN newsletter and are encouraged to do so. A note from you reminding them how healthy it is to read some good news about the climate will be most appreciated.
