Aug 31, 2018 03:15PM
As part of a global day of action, the Orlando People’s Climate March will be held at 11 a.m. on September 8 at Lake Eola Park in Orlando. Led locally by Kim White of Rise for Climate, it will be one of thousands of rallies taking place worldwide to demand that local leaders commit to building a fossil-free world and totally renewable energy that works for all of us.
“Together, we can make governments, institutions and corporations divest from fossil fuel,” says Bill McKibben, a longtime environmental advocate and founding fellow of the Sanders Institute, of Burlington, Vermont, which supports the program. “Together, we can elect candidates who vow to keep carbon in the ground. Together, we can use our collective voice to move our local communities, states and nation to 100 percent renewable energy.”
The Action Network is an open platform that empowers individuals and groups to organize for progressive causes.
Location: Lake Eola Park, 512 E Washington Street, Orlando. For more information, visit Rise ForClimate.org or ActionNetwork.org.
