Wed
Rep. Scott Peters Town Hall @ University City High School
Nov 6 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Rep. Scott Peters still refuses to support the Green New Deal. He refuses to reject fossil fuel industry donations. And he refuses to hold a climate town hall.

On Wednesday, Nov 6 he’s holding a limited town hall to discuss how well he’s serving San Diego, with all questions screened in advance. This event, starting at 6 pm Wednesday, will be at University City High School – where hundreds of students walked out last month to demand bold climate action like the Green New Deal.

You can help SanDiego350 tell Peters that his foot-dragging on the climate crisis is not ok.

Join us outside the event to distribute information to attendees and sign up climate action supporters. We will meet in front of the school, 6949 Genesee Ave., at 5 pm Weds, Nov. 6.  Doors to the event open at 5:30.

If you are a constituent, please register for Peters’ town hall ASAP and submit a question. You could ask him, for instance, why he prefers small steps to a comprehensive climate action plan with protections for workers and frontline communities.

See you Wednesday! Wear your SD350 t-shirt! (Below: student die in at Rep. Peters’s office)
