    YWCA of Southern Arizona
    525 N. Bonita Ave. Tucson

    Hosted by YWCA Arizona – STAT-Stand Together Arizona Training & Advocacy

    “According to a recent UN report, we have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe. So what are we going to do?

    The Stand Together Arizona Training and Advocacy Center’s Operation Haboob is bringing together a panel of global and micro-local experts from our backyard to talk about climate, but we also want to hear from you.

    This is the first in a series of monthly panels and public hearings on topics facing the People of Arizona. We’re putting climate at the top of the list to not only begin this important conversation, but to create a bridge between our climate and social justice communities.

    All testimony from the public hearing will be taken to Gov. Ducey’s office and shared with all state Legislators and federal representatives. Bring your written statement, and share three minutes on climate and community. Together, let’s amplify the conversation and voice’s of Arizonans.”
