350 Rally for a Green New Deal
In the lead-up to this year's United Nations Climate Change conference, 350 activists all over are taking action to spread the word about this goal. Tomorrow, all over the country, activists from 1Sky and Energy Action will visit members of Congress for an Accountability Day. There will also be a rally on Capitol Hill, organized by Chesapeake Climate Action Network, 1Sky and 350.org urging President-elect Obama to attend the UN Climate Conference in Poland. Send an invitation to Obama today if you haven't yet.
We're also very excited about an amazing 350 action that took place this past weekend. On Sunday, students, churchgoers, and community members rallied in the Hudson Valley, New York town of Poughkeepsie. Their focus? A Green New Deal to help reach 350. The event also kicked off a local 350 art contest.
Event organizer and local legislator (and radio host! A true jack-of-all-trades) Joel Tyner has also submitted a 350 resolution to the county legislature.
Photos and videos to come, but you can ready more about the event in a local newspaper, here. Thanks to all who came out Sunday!
