Now more than ever We Elders Need to Speak Out on Climate Change before it’s too late for our grandchildren and future generations!
Join Us in Washington DC April 27 & 28, 2017
Thursday, April 27
Members, supporters, and allies of Elders Climate Action will meet at American University Washington School of Law for a day of inspiration, learning, skill building, and planning.
We will hear first hand about the latest findings of climate science and the up-to-the-minute status of these issues in the new administration and Congress.
We will learn from experts how to bring our message forward most effectively in the face of the new political reality.
There will also be music and rehearsals for our signature flash mob to be performed at a yet-to-be disclosed location!
Friday, April 28
Morning: We will go in teams to the Halls of Congress (both the House of Representatives and Senate) to deliver the following message to all 535 offices. "We elders want action on climate change to protect our grandchildren and future generations - not inaction to protect the interests of fossil fuel companies."
Afternoon: We will plan the next phase of our campaign, bringing our message to Members of Congress in their Home Districts and to our state and local leaders, while raising public awareness and growing our movement.
***Due to the large numbers expected for the People's Climate March, hotel space will be limited and it is not too early to make your reservations. There are hostels and AirBNB accommodations in the DC area at reasonable prices but they will likely become scarce before long. We will send out information as soon as possible, but it is not too early to look for accommodations now.
