Coulee Region Progressives' Third Annual State of the Union event will be Friday, January 26 from 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. This years' theme: global warming and personal action.

The evening will start with a Community Information Fair with information and ideas about living more sustainably and reducing your personal energy use - home construction, ideas for reducing energy consumption, transportation alternatives and more - plus displays and information from groups working locally and state-wide on climate change issues. Network, exchange ideas, get motivated! A simple dinner including vegetarian and vegan items will be served.

This year's keynote speaker is Tia Nelson, daughter of Gaylord Nelson, the founder of Earth Day. Ms. Nelson has decades of experience in climate change issues, and now serves as Executive Secretary of Wisconsin’s Board of Commissioners of Public Lands. Following Nelson’s talk join us for Klub Karma and dance to ZJ music from clubs around the world.

Admission is by a "sliding scale" donation of $3 to $15, along with a non-perishable food item for the WAFER pantry.

Those who wish to may bring a potluck dessert or finger food item to share.

If you'd like to reserve display space, please click below.

We have a limited number of long tables. If you'd like table space, we request a donation of $5 per 1/2 table (3 to 4 feet) or $10 for a full table. We are especially interested in groups or individuals who can show how they have made a difference and can help others with things like sustainable living; making conscious transportation decisions; using solar energy/living off the grid; local food production and more.

This will be a great opportunity to spread the word, exchange ideas, find new contacts.

Please email Cathy at or RoZ at to sign up. The sooner the better - once space is gone we can't add more!
