Feeling overwhelmed by the bad news about the state of our environment and climate? Welcome to the club. I mean it, please join our club!
Resilient Palisades is a neighbor-led community group working to respond to the climate and ecological crisis of our time. We believe that local action is key to a better future for life on our planet.
What makes Resilient Palisades special is that we put an equal emphasis on the social aspect of our environmental mission. Our community building is equal parts activism and friendship.
In isolation, we may feel that the ecological problems are so vast that we surrender to inaction and sorrow. But the solution is as simple as joining hands with other caring folks of good will for good times as we make measurable progress toward environmental goals.
As an environmental attorney, I know the formidable challenges we face as the dominant species on a planet that we have altered to the point of system breakdown. My work can be very depressing, as there can be so much resistance to the smallest change.
Resilient Palisades is a strong support group for people who want to both protect our endangered resources for the next generations and to enjoy our time together in this beautiful community between the mountains and the ocean.
Raising a glass of organic wine together can be fuel for the next educational project we tackle. A walking meeting through Potrero Canyon can help us get in our steps as we plan a meeting with our representatives on environmental legislation.
Having lived in the Palisades since I graduated from law school in 1990, I can truly say that the relationships I have forged through Resilient Palisades have been some of the most rewarding.
Resilient Palisades is made up of teams working on specific campaigns, and there is bound to be a group that speaks your interests. From the Clean Energy Team, who is leading the charge for a solar energy microgrid in our town, to the Gas Free Gardens Team helping switch our landscaping to quiet and emission-free methods to the Composting Team, Zero Waste, Green Banking, Clean Water Team and Plant Based Solutions, there are just so many ways to get involved with neighbors who will become friends.
