Galena - Rise For Climate Tri-States!
Start: Saturday, September 08, 2018• 9:00 AM
End: Saturday, September 08, 2018• 1:00 PM
Our Tri-States event is meant to raise awareness about climate change, how it affects every aspect of our lives and to advocate for holding our government accountable. We want to show that people everywhere are demanding more from their local leaders and that we won’t accept anything less than a fast and fair transition to 100% renewable energy.
