Your generous Sponsorship Donations will be an investment to sustain our organizations mission and advocacy, while also allowing us to launch new educational programs, like our new Monthly Nature Outings Program-getting folks back into nature and exploring our beautiful Sonoma County. We will be able to support environmental candidates who don’t have the big-dollar-donors that we see dominate our political system. It will also allow us to continue to monitor and participate in City Council meetings, advocate for local policies that will help our community adapt to our changing climate. Please join us and sponsor the incredible work of our team
FIRST-EVER HYBRID GALA AND AUCTION JULY 31st – 4 to 6 pm
Traditionally, SCCA has hosted our Grassroots Gala in person every summer. Last year, we moved to an online event.
This year’s Grassroots Gala is a Hybrid Gala. The Online portion will present our program via Zoom, where we highlight this year’s environmental Award Winners, speak of Gratitude and live chat with In Person House Parties. In Person guests can watch the Gala from deck or patio, safely socially distanced.
Our fabulous On Line Auction is open 24/7 from July 22 through August 7th
Your support today will help us protect our oak and forest lands, keep our waterways, open spaces, and parks healthy, eliminate toxics from schools, provide access to more affordable housing into our urban cores, and help us elect community leaders who are ready to fight for a more sustainable and more equitable future for everyone.
This year our Grass Roots Gala will be held both in-person and online and includes Awards, Live Chats, and a Silent Auction! Ticket holders will receive a link to a Zoom that can be viewed on a device at home.
Over the last sixteen months, we have had to work hard to create community – through technology or behind masks. And as the world opens back up slowly, we want to celebrate the good things in life – the things that we’ve missed the most through the pandemic.
Sonoma County Conservation Action has played a critical role in keeping our waterways, open spaces, and parks healthy, eliminating toxics from schools, providing access to more affordable housing in our urban cores, and helping us elect community leaders who are ready to fight for a more sustainable and more equitable future for everyone. With your help, we can continue these fights through 2021 and into 2022.

‘Blue/Green Eggs and Ham’ 2020 Election Debrief
Saturday, January 23, 2021, at 10 AM-12 PM PST
Price: Free Public Event
*Registration will be required via Zoom for Comments
Online with Facebook Live
Co-sponsored by Sonoma County Conservation Action, the North Bay Labor Council, and the Sonoma County Democratic Party.
Every election year since 2000, the Sonoma County labor/environmental/social justice alliance holds a post-election review called (with a nod to Dr. Seuss) ‘Blue/Green Eggs and Ham’. One of the main themes of ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ is persistence, that if you persevere and refuse to give up, you can accomplish your goals in the end.
The moderators interview our Congressional Representatives, County Supervisors, Interim Director of the Ag and Open Space District, all nine Sonoma County Mayors, as well as some newly elected city councilmembers.
Agenda for 2020 Election Retrospective
National (Panel 1) Politics After Trump
Congressmen Jared Huffman and Mike Thompson, SSU Political Science Professor David McCuan, moderated by former California Assemblyman, Michael Allen
Sonoma County (Panel 2) Beyond the Disaster
County Panel featuring Incoming Chair of the Board Lynda Hopkins, Outgoing Chair Susan Gorin, and newly appointed interim General Manager of the Sonoma County Agriculture Preservation and Open Space District Caryl Hart, moderated by Dennis Rosatti (Principal Rosatti Consulting)
Mayors Roundup (Panel 3) Be Aware, Be Active
All nine Sonoma County Mayors discuss upcoming issues and call on us to participate and act in the coming year
Newly Electeds (Panel 4) New Kids on the Block
Newly-elected progressive leaders introduce themselves and show us hope for the future in a post-COVID, post-recession local political landscape
Public Comment Wrap-Up The Public Speaks
