Call to Action from Florida Climate Table: Monday, Nov. 9, 5:30 p.m. Miami Commission Building

Call to Action from Florida Climate Table

Shared by Jan Booher, a fellow UU and co-founder of the Climate Action Coalition of South Florida (CAC)

What:              City of Miami Commission Meeting – Agenda item: Sea Level Rise

Time:              Monday, November 9, 2015 5:30 p.m.

Location:        Miami City Hall – Commission Chambers

Address:        3500 Pan American Drive, Miami (Coconut Grove)

Some context:  The city commission is discussing Sea Level Rise. Miami-Dade County’s new Chief Resilience Officer, Jim Murley, will be in attendance.  We want to show him that Sea Level Rise is very important to residents in all of Miami’s neighborhoods — and that we want a seat at the table as the decisions are made regarding our economic future, our neighborhoods, our health, and our homes.    We also want Mayor and the city commission to hear loud and clear our call for urgency and transparency from all levels government…regarding efforts to address climate change and sea level rise.

Talking point guidelines:

  • Thank the Commission for addressing the consequences (present and future) of Sea Level Rise.
  • Seat at the table: Governments need to cooperate but all the major stakeholders that make up our city….including our residents, our community- based organizations, businesses, etc want to be involved.
  • A Call for Transparency as actions are considered.
  • Urgency: We want to urge that work starts as quickly as possible.  The studies have been done.  Let’s get to work on the county’s *capital plan* right away.  The time for action is now.
