100% Clean Energy - How Will It Work For ALL of Us?





Thursday, October 26th

The new technology of clean energy - solar power, efficient building and electric vehicles - is now more reliable and affordable than our old fossil fuel technology. City by city, we can transform America so that everyone has access to energy that still works after a storm. To do so, we must make sure every neighborhood has a say in how our cities plan for this transformation, engaging people we don't know in our communities in a way Sierra has never done before. 

Phil Compton, Florida lead staff for Sierra Club's Ready for 100% Clean Energy for All, will talk about how the Space Coast, which sent men to the Moon, can lead the way in meeting this century's biggest challenge: a just, secure and equitable future for us all.

This is free to the public. Doors open at 6:30.

Stay Up to Date on The Indian River Lagoon Tax Money

Check the web site below to find out how and where the Lagoon tax money is being spent.  The Citizens Oversight Committee that monitors this money meets every 3rd Friday on the 3rd floor of the County Government Building in Viera.

Please share this information with your friends, neighbors and HOA's.  It took time for the Lagoon to get into the shape it's in now, and it will take time to reverse the damage.  The public needs to understand this.
