You're invited to join friends and activists at Austin City Hall for a party and call to action on the evening of July 17 as part of the Sierra Club's nationwide Lightbulbs to Leadership campaign. The campaign is sending the message that to really solve global warming, we need to change more than just lightbulbs -- we need to change direction. We need action and leadership that is strong, urgent, and bold enough to get the job done.
As part of this event, we (along with participants in hundreds of house parties across the country) will participate in a teleconference call with Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope and Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire, a leader in clean energy work. We'll also hear a special message from green jobs leader Van Jones. They'll all talk about how we can achieve a clean energy future that creates green jobs and a healthy economy.
Members of the Austin City Council will also be there to speak about what is happening locally. We hope you can join the fun at the beautiful, unique and green Austin City Hall.
It's going to be a great time!
