* Take Action: No more “business as usual” on the Climate Crisis

Friends,

The rally was only the beginning.

Harness this momentum — call the White House to demand climate action today.

Make the call!

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.

This is only the beginning. Will you show President Obama that this is a national movement, and call the White House today to demand climate action?

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.

Watch our rally recap video, then keep the momentum going. Call the White House to demand immediate climate action on Keystone XL and dirty power plants!

What you’ve accomplished already is amazing, but there’s more to do.

Thanks for all your work and progress,

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!
