Description:
Do you want to help lobby bipartisan solutions on climate change? Or take the lead on talking to businesses about climate advocacy? Or how about being a public voice for climate engagement in politics? Citizens’ Climate Lobby helps to build political will for a livable world by empowering citizens to engage with national legislators on a bipartisan climate change solution called Carbon Fee & Dividend. This revenue-neutral, market-based solution would charge a slowly rising fee on carbon and return the dividends to each household equally on a monthly basis to offset the rising cost. It would also help to grow the economy, jobs, & GDP, provide predictability for the markets, promote bank investments in low-carbon technologies, and motivate energy companies to transition to cleaner energy faster. Come learn more about our legislation that has been introduced to Congress in 2019 with bipartisan support. It is called the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act www.energyinnovationact.org At our CCL-AVL chapter meetings, we dive into how we can use these strategies to build the political momentum for climate action to pass national bipartisan legislation on climate change. All political parties are welcome to join in this effort - conservative, liberal, progressive, libertarian, etc. Free with donation We meet every 3rd Monday of the month! Check out or share our events on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ashevilleccl Directions to Paulsen Lodge at Asheville School: Turn off Patton/Smoky Park Highway onto Asheville School Road.

Description:
This is a non-sexual touch based event that invites participants to explore platonic intimacy with like-minded people in an environment that upholds personal boundaries and respect through a supportive framework of mutual agreements that maximize safety and create a space of easy openness and compassionate connection. At this event we have the chance to normalize touch and intimacy with clear boundaries; this is a space for respectful, consent-based touch. We allow ourselves to be seen. We have fun. We get our touch needs met. We welcome people of all backgrounds, genders, ethnicities, economic statuses, races, spiritual or religious beliefs, sizes, and ages (children welcome; parents/guardians must keep your eyes on your children and be responsible for them). THE RULES OF CUDDLING Clothes stay on for the whole event. You do not have to touch anyone at a Cuddle Club event. You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. Please be specific in your requests. If you feel a yes, say YES. If you feel a no, say NO. If you’re a maybe, say NO. You can always change your mind. Get your facilitator or assistant if you have a question or concern, or if you need assistance with anything during the event. Talking, laughter, silence, silliness, stillness, and crying are welcome. WHY CUDDLE? Touch is a basic human need, and many of us do not get enough; most people don’t even know they are missing touch, or have a way to ask for touch without sexualizing it. We believe deeply in the power of touch, and the importance of communication and consent in creating a safe space for touch. CUDDLING WITH STRANGERS Cuddling with strangers sounds weird or scary to most people. “Will I like it?” “What if someone wants to touch me and I don’t want to?” “What if I say yes and it’s not what I want?” “What if I really want to touch someone and they say no?” These are all normal questions. The answer is that this is a space created to ask for exactly what you want, and receive NOTHING you don’t want. Many people start out nervous at a cuddle event. Most are really, really glad they came. Schedule: 6:45-7pm: Arrive with snacks to share! Get comfortable, meet, mingle, & snack.7:05pm: Welcome Circle- its mandatory. We will set our container, talk about personal boundaries, communication, & consent. If you show up after 7:05 you will not be allowed to join.7:15pm: Icebreakers and connective activities.7:30pm: Open cuddling! You MUST ask and get a verbal ‘yes’ before touching or cuddling with anybody at this event. If you are not sure how to do this – great! – we will talk about it during the welcome circle.9:45pm: Closing Circle10:00pm: cleanup and head home. ETIQUETTE ARRIVE ON TIME: It is important that all participants arrive before the Welcome Circle. The Welcome Circle serves the purpose of creating the safe space for consensual, non-sexual touch between participants and making sure that everyone is informed about consent. Please be free of strong scents; many folks would rather not be close to someone who smells of cigarettes, perfume, or essential oils. Your clean self is a good smell! BE SOBER: Please do not drink or smoke before or at this event. WHAT TO BRING: personal water bottle and snacks to share, blankets, pillows, anything else cuddly, a friend, a date – whatever cuddle accessories you like! The only thing that you are required to bring is a clean and sober you. We take individual and group safety seriously! if you experience, see, or know that one of our participants is not safe to be at a touch based event we want to know about it. We are committed to doing our best to create a safe environment which means that if someone is causing harm (physical or mental) that person is not welcome here (this includes harm that takes place outside of our events). We stand behind survivors and know that some of our participants are here to heal from touch based trauma.
