Galena - Rise For Climate Tri-States!

Start: Saturday, September 08, 2018 9:00 AM

End: Saturday, September 08, 2018 1:00 PM

September 8 is a chance to bring our local efforts together. All over the world, people will come together to demand local action for the climate, jobs and justice on the eve of the Global Climate Action Summit. Thousands of rallies will be held in cities and towns around the world to demand our local leaders commit to building a fossil free world that works for all of us. To change everything, we need everyone!

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.
