Challenging the U.S. War on the Atmosphere: How We Fight Back
April 28, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Federal government is not going to do anything constructive about the climate crisis. Instead, they are busy rolling back whatever progress we have made. Join us for a dynamic teach-in event that will be a prelude to the People’s Climate March (PCM) and explore concrete ways that we can fight back in our states, cities, and communities to advance a just climate agenda and to roll back the extractive economy. Please register.
Through creative interaction, this teach-in will engage, teach, entertain, and inspire climate justice activists to go back from the march and take action in our communities. Stay tuned in for more of the exciting details forthcoming. This is the kick-off event for the IPS Spring Series, IPS On the Offense: Big Visions for State and Local Power.
