Stephanie - this afternoon there was also a meeting of the Climate Action Council of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. There is a danger that this council will get no farther than consultation with people of color. Their process includes a social justice working group where this consultation is taking place. What can be done to push, persuade, inspire NYS to go further?

How does one begin to research the land on which we reside to understand its indigenous history and the people who were/are of or belonging to the land? that is, beyond the native-land.ca website Archives in the area do not capture this history, so where does a person start? I struggle with how to articulate this.

Is there any way to share the notes in the chat after the program? Thank you!
