We’re living in a time of global crisis. We bear witness to the effects of our government’s inability to respond to the existential threats of climate and ecological emergency, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the ravages of a long history of systemic racism. Facing these threats alone can be overwhelming.
Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a mass movement that is bringing people together to avoid total climate breakdown. This talk will (a) lay out the climate science that drives our urgency to act and (b) describe how we can use nonviolent direct action to demand change from government, corporations, and media.
You are welcome to join to learn about the state of the earth’s climate. Everyone, whether or not you are in a position to perform direct action yourself, is needed.
Come to hear more about what humanity is facing in the next decade, what has to happen to prevent catastrophe, and to connect with others who are wrestling with these truths. You are not alone.
Please register here ahead for this event as capacity is limited. The location is wheelchair-accessible.
