Earlier this month, GreenPAC Executive Director Sabrina Bowman sent out a recap video for 2017, chronicling our progress together last year and explaining why she’s choosing hope as her guidepost for 2018. Here it is again, in case you missed it.
I made my New Year’s resolution in December. No, it wasn't “clean the house more often” or “eat fewer cookies”.
Despite experiencing a year of much political inaction on the environment, when we’ve been overrun with bad news about the state of the planet, I resolved to choose hope.
Why? A year in as GreenPAC’s Executive Director and three years into the organization's existence, I’m finding myself feeling a growing optimism. I’ve met dozens of politicians who care deeply about the environment and who are pushing for change, be it in quiet discussions leading to partnerships with members of other parties, or on the global stage.
GreenPAC—and you—have been doing our part to make these conversations and relationships possible during the past year. We've created a summary video about our work in 2017. Click here or on our screencap to watch!
Thanks to you and our endorsed champions for helping me choose optimism instead of cynicism. It looks like I’ve already achieved my New Year’s resolution.
Now pass the cookies.
Happy new year,
