Rise for Climate

JHON CORTES

This Saturday: Rise for Climate!

 

This Saturday, September 8, is a day for us to bring our collective power to the forefront.

Join us on this global day as we RISE for climate action. It’s a day to unite and call for ways to make a difference.  To rise up against the tide of inaction by many elected leaders. 

RISE events are taking place in cities across the country. Here's information on the Portland rally;  Folks in Western Washington are coming together in Tacoma to Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice! If you're not near one of those locations, find a RISE event near you.

One of the most powerful ways we can pursue strong solutions to global warming is by accelerating our transition to clean energy and weaning ourselves off of fossil fuels. All across Washington this fall, we are knocking on our neighbors' doors to ensure that Initiative 1631 passes on the November ballot. We need to have conversations with lots of voters that may not yet know about this opportunity to clean our air, protect our water and help stabilize our climate.  So in addition to the RISE events, here are the details for doorknocking around Washington state tomorrow (and many other opportunities between now and November).

We’re all in this together. And together we are strong.
