Here in Los Angeles, we're planning a Climate Camp inspired by the German climate movement. We'll have delicious meals, seminars from organizers on the front lines of climate justice, creative team building events, and lots of opportunities for direct action! We can't wait to see you there! There's tons of preparation to be done to prepare for the Climate Camp and if you have any capacity for contributing please reach out!
