    I love to spend time with my little keyhole garden.  On one hand I get to compost kitchen scraps and on the other I can grow beautiful vegetables using the resulting compost.  It is a complete circle.

    How does advocating for rooftop solar connect to your values? How might you be able to get others involved in advocating for the shift to clean energy?

    Being able to produce energy from a renewable, non polluting, self-sustaining source like solar is ideal not only from a cost perspective, but from the impact to the environment.

    My biggest concern about what happens to our planet is the increased intensity of weather events.

    Electric vehicles are the future and will help us reduce our dependency on oil.

    Action Track: Accelerating Solutions Support Companies Leading in Green Energy
    Every dollar you put into solar or wind is a dollar not put into traditional financial institutions. You'll also be bolstering the fossil fuel divestment movement, too. Name some companies you know that invest in green energy. How can you support them?

    My company is moving away from diesel vehicles and spending resources to build electric trucks

    This week DTNA announced the opening of an electric super charging station on Swan Island, next to the corporate headquarters in Portland, OR.  The station was developed and built  along with the PGE (Portland General Electric), the local energy provider.  I'm proud to be part of a company that not only develops electric vehicles, but is also developing the infrastructure that helps support these vehicles on the road.  Way to go Daimler!!!!

    Globally, women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men. What have you done in the past to support women-owned businesses? How can you better support communities by supporting women?

     I like to take my alterations and dry cleaning to a little outfit shop owned by a woman who does a fantastic job.

    Action Track: Accelerating Solutions Express My Support For Walkable Cities
    How could better walking infrastructure make your city both more enjoyable and more equitable?

    Better walking infrastructure would allow city dwellers to leave their cars at home more therefore reducing pollution, get more exercise, and interact more with their neighbors.  It would also give those without cars the ability to easily reach goods and services in their community.
