First - WE NEED YOU! to TAKE A STAND FOR CLEAN CARS! On TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, the Clean Cars Campaign will hold a press event at La Crosse City Hall at 11:30 a.m. The event will publicize the importance of maintaining strong fuel efficiency standards in the United States where the transportation sector is responsible for the largest portion of greenhouse gas emissions. The Trump administration is considering rolling back these important standards. Weakening the standards will have a negative impact on our state's environment and economy as well as the household budgets of most Wisconsin citizens. (Read more about why this is important in our February newsletter and at the Clean Cars Campaign page.) IF YOU CAN COME TO SUPPORT THIS EFFORT AND HOLD A SIGN (provided) and STAND FOR CLEAN CARS, please come to La Crosse City Hall at 11:15 a.m. on Tuesday, February 20. We need a good crowd to show how important this issue is. If you plan to attend, please complete this form so we can have an idea of our numbers. Questions? Please email crsierraclub at gmail.

Next, on Saturday, Feburary 17, the Coulee Region Sierra Club, Citizens Climate Lobby - La Crosse, and the La Crosse Public Library, are sponsoring  Coulee Region Climate Change Stories - how climate change is affecting real people's lives - beginning at 1 p.m. at the La Crosse Public Library.  If you might be interested in hosting a similar event in your community, please email crsierraclub at gmail and we can connect you with event organizers.
