DC Acts on Climate Rally
September 23, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
The Council of the District of Columbia is back in session on Tuesday, September 23rd — and it’s time for them to act on climate!
With only a short window before the end of the year, the DC Council needs to pass bills that divest city funds from fossil fuels and clean up our Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard. On the heels of the massive, 400,000-strong People’s Climate March in New York City, we’re coming together to show the DC Council that when they protect the environment, we have their back. We’ll call on the DC Council to take action on key legislation that protects the climate and keeps our communities healthy!
The rally is hosted by a coalition of environmental advocates and leaders in DC and the DMV region, including: Chesapeake Climate Action Network * DC Divest * DC Environmental Network * 350 DC * Interfaith Power & Light (MD.DC.NoVA) * Global Green USA * Green Cross International * Center for Biological Diversity * Moms Clean Air Force – Washington, DC * Friends of the Earth U.S. * Sierra Club, Washington DC Chapter.
