20 degrees. 1,500 people. One voice.
Saturday saw an amazing climate rally in Maine, one of many events in the 100 Days of Action for Climate -- and February 17 on the National Mall is going to be even better. Tens of thousands of activists like you have RSVPed, we're lining up speakers and arranging the buses and actions, and President Obama will hear you.
Our friends at 350 put together this inspiring video about the Forward on Climate Rally -- can you share it on Facebook with your friends and ask them to join you in D.C.?
I also wanted to let you know some more details about the rally.
We'll be gathering on the National Mall between the Washington Monument and the White House -- the nearest Metro Stations (subway) are Federal Triangle and Smithsonian. Actions will include a march to the White House and a giant human pipeline down 15th Street that will transform into a symbol of renewable energy. And we'll have a big announcement about speakers by next week!
As always, keep checking ForwardOnClimate.org for new details and updates.
We're constantly adding new buses, blog posts, and other details. You can also visit Ridebuzz
to arrange a carpool or CouchSurfing
* to find (or offer!) a guest room, floor, or couch in the D.C. area.
I'll see you next month in D.C. For now, get pumped with this video, and ask your friends to help you make this the biggest climate rally ever!
Thanks for all you do,
Forward on Climate Rally Director
PS -- It's a great video, but I can't blame you for wanting to do more now! There are two other important ways you can help prepare for the rally -- sign up to phone bank and recruit attendees from home,
or chip in $10 to help make sure we can pay for expenses
like buses, stage equipment, spreading the word, and more!
