About 500 residents, politicians and activists showed support for climate-change policies at an Organizing For Action town hall last week at the Silver Spring Civic Center.
“Cleaner air leads to healthier families,” said Neeta Datt, the county director of OFA.
The nearly four-hour meeting was the first in a month of action for OFA, a nonprofit that supports President Barack Obama’s agenda.
Speakers focused on the president’s plan, but also encouraged action on an individual level.
