Rally for the Planet, Tomorrow

Tomorrow, right here in DC, you can join people all over the world in an International Day of Climate Action sponsored by 350. (Why does the number 350 matter? Find out in this short video or check out the FAQs.)

So far more than a hundred nations are taking part, and thousands are expected at the biggest rally, starting at noon in Malcolm X/Meridian Hill Park. After speakers, music, cultural performers, exhibits and more, the group will form a “circle of hope” across from the White House.

If a rally’s not your speed, consider the 14 other events in DC (search in your area), including a mass bike ride, a recycling raid, an organic and vegan food prep, and a joycott at Bourbon Coffee, to get you wired about saving the planet.
