sponsored by the Sierra Club Bay Chapter’s Don’t Frack CA team
Tuesday June 17, 6:30 pm (our June monthly meeting time), Chapter Office, 2530 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley.
At the June meeting of the Bay Chapter’s Don’t Frack CA team, we’ll hear from Sbeydeh Viveros-Walton, senior aide and savvy political staffer to Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates, about how to most effectively communicate with elected officials and government agencies to gain their support. She’ll make a short presentation and then answer our questions.
Sbeydeh has an MA in public administration from Cal State San Francisco as well as a lot of practical working political experience. She has been a valuable and extremely articulate member of Leadership East Bay, a community-based leadership development program.
Come with your strategy questions! This will be a valuable training for anti-fracking activists, as well as for all others who want to learn more about how to influence government agencies.
The event is organized by the Bay Chapter’s Don’t Frack California team, and will start with a brief meeting in lieu of the team’s regular monthly meeting.
