On September 8, we will join thousands of rallies held in towns around the world to demand that our local leaders commit to building a fossil-free world that works for all of us.

We will gather on the beach, on both land and water, to celebrate our beautiful Olympic Peninsula and its many life forms, to break bread together (BYO and enough to share if possible), to engage in some art and music, and to learn what steps need to be taken to ensure a safe, prosperous, and just world for our children.

Featured speaker will be Eric de Place of the Sightline Institute.

Acting NOW on climate will:

* Protect our community from oil spills, sea level rise, wildfire, droughts and flooding, fisheries collapse, and other serious consequences of climate change.

* Support the human rights of the most vulnerable in our communities, such as the young, elderly, poor, and native Americans.

* Create local jobs in energy efficiency, clean energy, and land stewardship.

Speakers, art and entertainment, demonstrations on both land and water, and a beach barbecue are planned. Details are here:
