Indivisible AVL General Meeting: May

May 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This month’s meeting focuses on state-level threats to the environment and to our legislative system.

Our guest speaker is environmental activist Steve Norris, who will give a special presentation on the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline and its effects on the people of North Carolina and will conclude with actions we can take right now. Steve is a retired professor at Warren Wilson College and has been an activist since the civil rights movement in the 1960s. He now focuses his activism on climate and energy issues. For more on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the effect it would have on North Carolinians, see Steve’s recent op-ed in the Asheville Citizen-Times.

Our NCGA Watch team leader Barbara Stalzer will also give us an update on the NC General Assembly’s attempt at legislative redistricting and changes to our judicial election system.

Indivisible general meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month. Each month we’ll give updates on recent and future actions and highlight opportunities to get involved, and we’ll also focus on learning more about our elected representatives in Raleigh and Washington, or hearing from candidates who are seeking election, or learning more about a particular issue, or sharing tools for active engagement.

Monthly meetings are always free and open to the public.
