Environmental Justice Task Force Next Steps!

We are working on a local issue in our community, a Sustainability Commission for the City of Green Bay. This campaign seeks to urge the City of Green Bay to create an Advisory Commission on Sustainability to explore sustainability initiatives that can be implemented in Green Bay. Because state and national institutions are unresponsive to sustainability issues, particularly related to climate change and energy, local governments have both an opportunity and imperative to step up and implement grassroots solutions that will allow our communities to do our part to mitigate climate change. Many cities throughout the nation and Wisconsin have made strides in the past decade, but Green Bay is not one of them. In order to fully realize the potential our city can have to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and provide a more sustainable, livable, and healthy community, a collaborative space needs to be established to realize our options.

The Sustainability Commission Ordinance was introduced by Aldermen Randy Scannell on Tuesday May 15th 2018 and on Tuesday, May 22nd 2018 the Ordinance passed through the City of Green Bay Protection and Welfare Committee (3-0).

On Tuesday, June 19th at 7pm at Green Bay City Hall (100 N Jefferson St, Green Bay, WI 54301) the Sustainability Commission Ordinance will be read at the full city council meeting.

What can you do to help us pass the Sustainability Commission Ordinance?

1) Contact your Green Bay City Council Alder person and ask them to support the formation of a citizen commission on sustainability for the city of Green Bay.

We are very excited to announce that our 14th Annual JOSHUA Banquet will be on Friday, November 2nd at the Tundra Lodge Resort & Conference Center! Please make sure you add this to you calendar, and stay tuned for more details!

Every year we have a team come together to plan the annual JOSHUA banquet; but this year we’re going to do things a bit differently. We are going to form smaller committees to really focus on one aspect of the banquet to make the whole banquet stronger than ever before. I ask you think about if there is one or two areas that you can really bring your strengths. By dividing up the work; it will make the work easier for everyone, as well as require less meetings for all! Please take a minute to consider where your talents can be used to help strengthen JOSHUA and the 2018 14th Annual JOSHUA Banquet. Click here to fill out the form.
