Welcome to the Dallas Group of the Sierra Club
Dallas Sierra Club General Meeting via Zoom - Tuesday, June 8
A New Normal: Environmental Nonprofits and Paid 'Volunteers'
Please join us for a frank discussion with Al Smith, from Socialwyze, as he explores the public and environmental impact of work and income insecure people and the neighborhoods they inhabit. From environmental "hot zones" to food deserts, more and more neighborhoods are seeing their communities falter and become forgotten.
Socialwyze is a new Eco and Social company that supplies nonprofits with fully-funded labor to expand the impact of their public benefit projects. This not only furthers environmentally impactful work, but it allows people who need work to find it. Whether there's a need for cleaning parks, beaches, planting trees, tending a community garden, or doing environmental remediation, nonprofits can readily increase their impact with a consistent supply of workers who need transitional work to support their families.
From 6:45 to 7:00 p.m. you can log in to the meeting, chat, and ask questions. The meeting will begin at 7:00 with announcements, followed by our speaker's presentation.
