The Dallas-based vegan accessories company Cyckochik is hosting a "compassionate" shopping event. Featuring female artists and artisans, cocktails, munchies and a DJ. Cause partners include the The Humane League's Dallas Office. 

Guest speaker Calvine Tillman, former mayor of DISH. 

The topic for this meetup is Lobbying For Change (how to organize around topics & the causes we want to work on together this month). We'll also be talking about the latest environmental news, and then move on to member suggested topics. 

This event is scheduled around dinnertime, so I chose a restaurant to meet in. Please feel free to come a little bit early and get a bite to eat or pick up a pint while we're there.

Monthly get-together and networking with green-minded folks.

Are humans causing global climate change?  What is the evidence?  What will happen to the planet?  Why do people disagree about it?  And what can be done about it?  

A lot of people either (1) deny that the planet is warming , often claiming that it is cooling, or (2) accept that the planet is warming but deny that humans are causing it. 

The Humanists of Fort Worth are hosting guest speaker Dr. Michael Slattery, who will explain the evidence for anthropogenic climate change. He has spoken on this topic to a wide range of audiences, including coal and chemical industry groups. He enjoys speaking to audiences who are skeptical, and he will entertain questions anyone has during his presentation.

Professor Slattery is the Chair of the Dept. of Environmental Science and Director of the Institute for Environmental Studies at TCU. He obtained his Ph.D. from Oxford in 1994. Among numerous other publications, he is the author of Contemporary Environmental Issues, which is now in its third edition.

Eli Baron will share pictures and experiences of his bike rides around the world. David Griggs will talk about the upcoming fall elections and candidates friendly to the environment. Free. Info: 972-699-1687. [email protected]
