Electric New Year

Tuesday, February 04, 2020 at 07:00 PM · 6 rsvps
Melody Yazdani Studios in Vienna, VA

Join Mothers Out Front Fairfax County as we kick off a new year of #CleanBuses4Kids advocacy!

Less a meeting, more a casual gathering over hors d’oeuvres and drinks, this event is our chance to reflect on the conversation we started about electric school buses in 2019 and where we see that conversation going in 2020. 

The Fairfax County chapter of Mothers Out Front started meeting in May of last year. We held a hugely successful press event to launch our #CleanBuses4Kids campaign in August. A week later, Dominion Energy announced the biggest electric school bus initiative in the country. A couple of months after that, the historic November election gave us eight new Fairfax County School Board members—all of whom support #CleanBuses4Kids.

And just last week, Fairfax County Public Schools was awarded eight electric school buses as part of the Dominion Energy initiative.

Let’s take this opportunity on February 4 to celebrate our early successes and congratulate our new School Board members! Let’s take this opportunity to get excited about the year ahead!

Roanoke Public Narrative Workshop - Part 1

Saturday, February 08, 2020 at 10:30 AM · 3 rsvps
Online Zoom Webinar in Roanoke, VA
The Mothers Out Front Public Narrative Workshop will provide participants with skills and tools useful for public speaking with an emphasis on sharing their story and ways to inspire others to take action.
 
The public narrative workshop was designed and adapted from the work of Marshall Ganz and the Leading Change Network to prepare members for speaking and motivating others to take action for social justice at rallies, public hearings, meetings with decision makers or even small group settings. This is part 1 of a 2 part workshop. Participation in both sessions is not mandatory but strongly encouraged if possible. At the end of the workshop participants will leave with a fully developed public narrative to share. The workshop includes time to work on and present your public narrative!
 
This event is free and open to the public. The workshop was designed to support those working on environmental and climate justice issues but is beneficial for anyone organizing for social justice. All are welcome. Invite your friends!
 
Please register for the webinar.
 
Public Narrative Part 2 will be held February 15th from 10:15am to 2:30pm at the Williamson Road Branch Library, Roanoke VA. Please register here.
