Kicking Off 2018 With a Plan to Win
What happens in 2018 will be up to you.
In 2017 there were constant assaults on our climate and communities from the Trump administration and their fossil fuel billionaire pals. But together we fought back against every attack.
In 2018, we’ll need to keep our eyes on the prize, and take the fight to the local level. We’re launching the year with fire in our bellies and a plan we believe in.
On January 31st, the day after Trump’s first State of the Union, movement leaders and community organizers will gather in Washington D.C. to share our plan to win at Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance.
The event will feature:
- Senator Bernie Sanders
- 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben
- Rev. Lennox Yearwood from Hip Hop Caucus
- Jacqueline Patterson from the NAACP
- Cherri Foytlin from BOLD Louisiana
- Adriana Voss-Andreae from 350PDX
- Varshini Prakash from the Sunrise Movement
- Jessica Lorena Rangel from Eyes of a Dreamer
- and many other exciting speakers and performances.
Thousands of people will be at the event to learn more about the climate crisis and what some pipeline fighters, local climate champions, and national progressive leaders are doing to fight back in 2018. All across the country, they’ll be joined by thousands more witnessing the event via livestream at watch parties organized in their local areas.
If you are in D.C. – we’d love to see you at this event! Tickets are available now on a sliding scale. Get yours now, and don’t forget to invite your friends! We need all hands on deck to accelerate the fight for a fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy for all.
If you want to watch the event via livestream, sign up today to attend a watch party in your area. If there aren’t any watch parties near you, you can always sign up to host one!
We recommend watch parties begin at 7 or 7:30 ET. That way, everyone has time to arrive before the event officially begins. If you do choose to host a watch party, don’t worry–we’ll provide you with all the support you need.
The last year has been painful, and at times, hope has been hard to find. But the tide is turning in 2018. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that together, we are powerful.
Together, we can take on fossil fuel elites and their profit-driven destruction. Together we can build the Fossil Free world we need, with a fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy for all.
Are you ready for an epic 2018? We got this. Don’t forget: Sign up for a watch party near you today, or get your tickets now if you want to attend the event in person.
