We would like to formally invite you to an online forum on August 5th, 2020 presented by Regeneracion in collaboration with the California State University Monterey Bay Environmental Studies program. Our forum, entitled "Climate of Hope", will focus on how the Pajaro Valley and other agricultural communities are being affected by climate change and promoting solutions and strategies for equitable climate action.

Speakers include: Assemblymember Robert Rivas, 30th District California

Natalie Hernandez of Climate Resolve will moderate a panel of local experts including:

We will be presenting new data from a survey conducted with local farmers and displaying slides from a powerful art show called Campesinos: Workers of the Land, from the Pajaro Valley Arts Gallery.
