This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. (All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.)
Talk on renewables
The Pittsford Public Library will host "100% Renewable Energy for NYS by 2030: Vision or Dream?" The talk by Hal Bauer, NYS Sierra Club at-large delegate, will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 12. Transition to fossil-free energy is a goal of the Sierra Club, but the transition will not be turnkey and green shopping alone is not a solution. Bauer's talk will be held at the Pittsford Public Library, 24 State Street.
Film discussion on mental illness
The Lifetree Café will present "Mysteries of Mental Illness: One Woman's Struggle to Regain Her Life," at 7 p.m. on Monday, January 13. The film is about Karen McCracken, author of "Breaking Free from OCD." The film will be followed by a discussion with a focus on recovery and management of mental illness, and dispelling negative stigmas. The event will be held at 1301 Vintage Lane, Greece.
Sustainable Saturday event
Rochester Greenovation will hold Sustainable Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on January 11. The event will feature 60 artists, food vendors, green businesses, and presentations by environmental groups. It will be held at 1199 East Main Street.
