 +**For our __May Meeting Presentation__:​Addressing Climate Change Everywhere, All Of The Time [but from a Milwaukie, OR perspective]** ​
 +
 +**Speaker: Mark Gamba is the Mayor of Milwaukie, Oregon**. He serves on the executive committee of the Metropolitan Mayors Consortium, is past chair of the Metropolitan Policy Advisory Committee, and serves on numerous other committees. Mark entered politics six years ago with a run for Milwaukie City Council. As a photographer for National Geographic, he witnessed firsthand the urgent need for all of us, everywhere, all of the time, to be working to address climate change, and realized public office was the place he could make the greatest impact. Mark is frequently invited to speak on climate issues, and is a past participant in Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Corps training.
 +
 +**Speaker: ​ Kathy Hyzy, Milwaukie City Council Member,** is a lifelong advocate for the natural world.

 +
 +Oftentimes our policy focus on climate issues is trained on the global or national level, yet taking a stand on climate change is possible and essential for a city of any size. After months of input from community stakeholders,​ in October of 2018, Milwaukie’s Climate Action Plan—which will make Milwaukie a fully carbon neutral city by 2050—was finalized and adopted by Milwaukie City Council. Mark and Kathy will share how the plan was developed, the specifics of where Milwaukie is focusing its efforts, and how the plan is gradually being implemented throughout the community. ​

 +**For our __March Meeting Presentation__:​** ​  we heard a presentation from Jen Coleman of the Oregon Environmental Council and Mary Peveto, Co-Founder of Neighbors for Clean Air on “Ditching Dirty Diesel”. ​
 +
 + 
 +
 +Speaker – Jen Coleman
 +
 + 
 +
 +Jen Coleman is Oregon Environmental Council'​s Health Outreach and Communications Director. For ten years, she has worked with Oregon Environmental Council to advance policies that reduce toxic exposures in our environment and to give people the tools they need to act on their health and environmental values. Jen has served on the governor'​s Environmental Justice Task Force, the Multnomah County Healthy Homes Coalition, the Healthy Communities Coalition, and more. Before moving to Oregon to work with OEC, Jen spent ten years working with Environmental Defense Fund in New York.

 +Speaker – Mary Peveto  ​
 +
 + 
 +
 +Mary co-founded Neighbors for Clean Air in 2010 with friends and neighbors to work for stricter state standards to regulate air toxics in Oregon and to continue to strengthen and galvanize the citizen action necessary to effect change in regulating toxic air pollution. She is a mother of three who calls herself an “accidental activist.” She started organizing neighbors and parents when she stumbled upon a national study published in 2008 that showed her daughters’ school to be ranked among the worst 2% in the nation for schools at risk to toxic industrial air pollution. Mary guides NCA's policy work in addition to leading the organization as a whole.

 +Presentation – “Ditching Dirty Diesel”
 +Reference: ​ HB 2007: Clean Up Old Dirty Diesel: Slides: ​ {{ :​actions_previous:​hb2007_diesel_oec_2_26_19.pdf |}}
 + The bill:  {{ :​actions_previous:​hb2007_diesel_oec_2_26_19.pdf |}}
 +
 +Note:  In the confusion on quorums in the Senate, this bill was in the Sunday, last day rush --> It passed. Probably not same as February version, above.
 + 
 +
 +Pollution from old heavy-duty diesel engines is one of Oregon'​s worst air quality problems, taking a multi-billion-dollar toll on our health. And yet it's one of the most fix-able problems as well: engine technology and federal standards have made new heavy duty engines 95% less polluting in the last decade. The problem: old engines in Oregon are far outlasting their expected lifetime—and more old engines continue to be added to Oregon'​s fleets. The Oregon Environmental Council ha sponsored HB 2007: A bill to clean up old heavy and medium-duty diesel engines. ​
