Comment to Save Science at EPA

Action (1) Send comments to EPA to oppose restrictions on the Agency’s use of science. Submit your comments at Regulations.gov using thi...

Please join our team in taking action to protect our environment and stand up for science!


Mission Statement

Our mission is to resist the agenda of the Trump administration and promote an agenda that protects the environment and the role of science in society by affecting change through the political system at all levels of government. We care about all aspects of the environment and science, including but not limited to climate change, pollution, science denial, endangered species, and public lands.

Our group focuses on actions. We meet, discuss, conduct research, and inform each other always with the aim of coordinating and taking actions that will have maximum impact. Members can influence the focus of our group by taking the initiative to organize actions affecting topics they care about. We believe that actions taken collectively are far more impactful than actions taken individually, and so we believe in a deliberate and efficient process for acting as a group. We maximize our impact by providing clear directions for action to all members of our group and to all Indivisible Berkeley members.


Team Information

Our team usually meets on the FIRST and THIRD Sundays of the month, at 7pm, at Three Stone Hearth. Newcomers are welcome.

Please check the calendar page to find the time and location of our next team meeting!

Join our email list by sending a blank email to environment+subscribe@indivisibleberkeley.org from the address you wish to subscribe.

If you have questions about our team, email environment+owner@indivisibleberkeley.org. You can find us in the #science_environment channel in the IB Slack.
