Parry Burnap Accelerate Climate Action Presentation
Climate change important to our time. Our goal is to inspire neighbors to take small steps to take actions to reduce impact on climate because we learned that citizens identify with what neighborhood they live in more so than ever before and they can identify with “place” and personal ability to impact change. We talk about weather and not the climate.
Working for about a year and following information from Naomi Klein book “This Changes Everything” about climate change

This facility, originally named the SouthWest Denver Community Center, was formed by Grace Methodist Church who purchased the land 1930’s because they saw the need for a community center in this area. The community center cornerstone was laid in 1957.
In the 1970’s, the City of Denver purchased the Center and leased it back for $1 per year to the SouthWest Community Center Board. In return, the City obtained Model Cities’ monies to build a library, health clinic and child care center.
In the late-1980’s, the Southwest Community Center board had difficulty paying the utility bills and other obligations. The Board split, with both factions claiming to be the ‘real’ board with access to the bank accounts. As a result, the City renamed this facility the Westwood Community Center, and chose one of the factions to be the ones receiving the mail and having access to the bank accounts.
