Monona Rise for Climate Rally

Start: Saturday, September 08, 201812:00 PM

On September 8, thousands of rallies will be held in cities and towns around the world to ask our local leaders to commit to building a fossil free world that works for all of us.

Bring friends, the family and signs, and join together to send a common message to our leaders, asking them to commit to moving forward on 100% renewable energy for our community; to make it a priority.

Our leaders are good people who want to do the right thing. We need to show them we've got their backs, we support this change, and we're ready to work together with them to make it happen.
