Global Climate Strike Friday March 25th
Start: Friday, March 25, 2022• 1:00 PM
End: Friday, March 25, 2022• 3:00 PM
The climate crisis is here. So are we!
The dependence on fossil fuel has made Russia into a military superpower. Putin's war in Ukraine has shown us that fossil fuels aren't just killing us through the climate crisis, they're killing us through bombs and warplanes. We must show up for Ukraine. We can change the course of history. Right now, President Biden has the unprecedented power to kickstart a just transition away from fossil fuels.
Strike with us to call on Biden to invoke the Defense Production Act - this would accelerate and ramp up production of renewable energy, create millions of good, green jobs, and end Putin's stranglehold on the world's energy economy. This is so possible, but without public pressure from us, Biden will stick with the status quo. Join us to demand a just, livable future where we can all thrive.
Peace is at stake. Our futures are at stake. Our lives are at stake.
Note** To protect fellow immunocompromised community members, PLEASE wear masks. Masks will also be made available.
