Wednesday, July 23rd: Forks Over Knives

Excellent film on how to eat for health and for a healthy planet. A nutritional study of 800,000 subjects yields many interesting findings. Is food medicine and can it prevent and reverse disease? What about organic?

Make your voice heard! City council decisions, regulatory actions, legislation in Austin; we need to be ready to act at a moment's notice to support the good and stop the bad.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple phone call or email message to sway the opinion of our local elected leaders and officials. Contact us and we will add you to our Alamo Sierra Club Action Alert Email List. You don't have to be a Sierra Club member to receive our alerts, (but we do hope you'll join us).

Our theme this year was Traditions Old and New illustrating various types of carryout bags used throughout the years. Sierra Club marchers enacted old and renewed carryout bag traditions as part of our 2014 It’s in the Bag! campaign to support a citywide carryout bag ordinance.
