This is our monthly meeting, held on the third Monday of the month at 7 PM in the social hall of the Unitarian Society of New Haven.  We start with 30 minutes of coffee and conversation at 7 PM, followed by the main program at 7:30 PM.

Our guest speaker for the evening is Steve Lewis from the Connecticut chapter of the Sierra Club. Steve will update us on: the urgency of the Climate Crisis, actions taken in 2019 by the CT General Assembly to address it, Sierra Club campaigns in progress, and what we can do to help change the trajectory of this problem.

Steve holds a BA in Political Science from Trinity College Hartford and an MBA in Healthcare and Technology Management from UConn. He was the Committee Administrator of the Public Health Committee in the CT General Assembly for 13 years and is Vice-president of Strategic Initiatives at UnitedHealthcare.

Steve is an avid environmentalist with two electric vehicles and solar on his house. In his spare time Steve is a Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Scoutmaster and is District Chairman of the CT Rivers Council for the Hockanum River District. Steve is also a CT Audubon Master Naturalist and a Leave No Trace - Outdoor Ethics Master Educator.

Steve was awarded a Hornaday Gold Badge for Conservation for his efforts teaching Monarch Butterfly Conservation by the BSA. The Hornaday Gold Medal for adults serving at least 20 years in conservation has only been awarded about 40 times since its establishment in 1975.
