Climate Emergency, Election Emergency

February 25 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Lady Liberty and other protesters with sign that says Climate Change is Real -No fossil Fuel -Yes to Clean Energy

We learned this week that not only is Russia interfering in the 2020 election, but the Trump Administration is actively helping them, notably by firing the Director of National Intelligence because his deputy briefed Congress about this. This continuing pattern of people being fired for for doing their job and for telling the truth speaks of an escalating autocracy, the literal destruction of the administrative state. Meanwhile, we learned that a PAC funded by #MoscowMitch is actively interfering in the NC Senate race and that Putin is apparently aiding Trump in the Democratic primaries. The climate emergency is arguably more important and urgent than all of this, but if we do not have free and fair elections in 2020, there is not hope that we can slow the escalating destruction of the planet. We are proud to welcome guest speakers Josh McClenney, the NC Field Coordinator for Appalachian Voices, and Karen Beardon, the 350.org Triangle Coordinator.

Please join us and wear red if you have it.
