|The rally was only the beginning.
Harness this momentum — call the White House to demand climate action today.
When over 40,000 people performed an indigenous round dance for the climate at the Washington Monument, it was a beautiful sight.
Thank you to the nearly 50,000 who attended the Forward on Climate Rally on Sunday, the thousands at 20-plus solidarity rallies across the country, and the many, many more who stood up online to tell President Obama that this is the time to lead. This truly was the largest climate rally in U.S. history.
Americans have had their lives shaken by crippling droughts, record floods, devastating wildfires, and monster storms fueled by the climate crisis. The threat of climate disruption has become a dangerous reality. We cannot settle for half measures taken at a “business as usual” pace — and on Sunday, we made sure President Obama heard our voices.
We marched to his front door, chanted to First Nation drums, held up homemade signs, watched screens of social media action from around the country, and heard from powerful speakers like Michael Brune, Bill McKibben, Van Jones, Rosario Dawson, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Chief Jacqueline Thomas, and more.
What you’ve accomplished already is amazing, but there’s more to do.
Thanks for all your work and progress,
Forward on Climate Rally Director
P.S. Three calls are worth even more than one. After you take action, be sure to forward this alert to your friends and colleagues!
