Coming up real soon is “Step It Up 2007”, an event that will unite communities across the country in the fight against climate change, and if you want to be involved, now is the time to get started. As of today, there are 788 events in 48 states taking place this April 14th and they are looking for more people to organize events in their communities.
From Bill McKibben:
“This is an invitation to help start a movement–to take one spring day and use it to reshape the future. Those of us who know that climate change is the greatest threat civilization now faces have science on our side; we have economists and policy specialists, courageous mayors and governors, engineers with cool new technology.
But we don’t have a movement, the largest rally yet held in the U.S. about global warming drew a thousand people. If we’re going to make the kind of change we need in the short time left us, we need something that looks like the civil rights movement, and we need it now. Changing light bulbs just isn’t enough.”
Sounds pretty cool, I hope the media will take notice as normally they just say “a few activists did blah blah” and leave it at that. If you want to find out more about the plans for April 14th, you can read more about what is happening in your community and all the plans, or if you want to organize your own climate change event, you can go directly to the sign up page. You can be sure we will be at one of the events here in Los Angeles!
