We Are Still In: Climate Change Rally

Start: Saturday, June 10, 2017 3:00 PM

Rally to defend the Paris Climate Agreement with US Rep. Debbie Dingell, State Rep. Yousef Rabhi, County Commissioner Conan Smith and a host of other public figures and activists!

The Sierra Club, 350.org, Al Gore's Climate Reality Project and many other national organizations have joined forces to call for an #ActOnClimate National Day of Action. Trump may have pulled the nation as a whole from the Paris Climate Agreement, but around the country states and cities (including Ann Arbor) have pledged to comply with the accord anyway. So far nine states and nearly 200 cities have committed to keep the terms of the agreement (WeAreStillIn.com).Join us to protest Trump's act and to call on the cities of SE Michigan to both enact and fund climate action.

Speakers include:

US Rep. Debbie Dingell
State Rep. Yousef Rabhi
Washtenaw County Commissioner Conan Smith
Ann Arbor City Councilmember Zachary Ackerman

On June 10, “Act on Climate” rallies will take place at City Halls and State Capitols across the country, encouraging elected leaders who are already taking climate action seriously, and pushing those who aren’t to step up for meaningful climate action despite Trump Administration’s pull out from the Paris Agreement.

Together, we have an opportunity to drive our collective outrage into local action, and show the world a unified national response to Trump’s dangerous decision to reject the Paris agreement.

The action we need from every elected official is clear: Side with Paris. Commit to a target of 100% renewable energy, without delay. Stop building new fossil fuel projects. Divest from coal, oil and gas companies.
