On Saturday, July 13, Chispa CT held our first committee meeting in Windsor. Members from the community joined us for a seminar on civic engagement around environmental issues.
Chispa CT committee members shared their biggest concerns about our environment and selected three issues they want to help solve:
Additionally, concerns around plastics, waste, and the burning of trash for energy in Hartford came up several times.
As a result of this seminar, our community members agreed to form a formal working committee called Chispa People for the Planet. Our next committee meeting will be held on August 17, 2019.
The committee will create a plan of action to affect change at the Capitol during the next legislative session, particularly on energy equity, climate change mitigation, and reducing energy waste.
