As has become clear, these are threatening times — for our earth, for all creatures, for sustainable human societies, for the health of our soils, air, forests, rivers, reefs, oceans, and viable life everywhere. Yet our governmental and international structures are not taking significant enough action. So as many of us have come to believe, we need to start here — wherever we find ourselves — building resilience and the deep, necessary changes from the ground up.

A group of us in the central Ohio area have started a movement we’re calling ROAR (Regional Ohio Action for Resilience) to help fill that gap. We know that no one group — big or small, activist, academic or non-profit, city or business based — can take this on alone. Yes, much is already being done — by many people and organizations, but often in isolation. With ROAR, we seek to unite our forces toward greater, more collaborative, more regional climate crisis action. Not more policy discussion, not more extensive research. Those pieces are already in place. We are seeking concentrated, well-designed action.

If you are interested in being part of this effort, please consider coming to an information session in Meeting Room 1 of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, Northside Branch, 1423 N. High St., on Thursday, January 16, 6:30-8:30pm.

Hosted by Ready for 100 Columbus.
