We'll be holding an in-person session of our climate emergency movement training series at the Patagonia Store's event space (1048 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007).

We'll be covering The Climate Mobilization's core concepts, strategies, and organizing best practices to carry out the vision laid out in our newly published "Blueprint for a Climate Emergency Movement", to build a critical mass of public support for the common-sense demand to launch a WWII-scale emergency national mobilization to reach 100% clean energy and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions within the next decade, guarantee full employment in a sustainable economy, and begin restoring a safe climate for all of us.

This event is free, with food!

6:30pm: Doors open.
7:00-9:00pm: Training takes place.

Closest Metro station: Foggy Bottom-GWU (2301 I St NW, Washington, DC 20037 - Gray/Blue/Orange Lines). Then walk or take the DCWE Georgetown Circulator to NW M St & NW Wisconsin Av.

The Trump administration's attacks on morality and science are so devastating that the media and the broader public finally seem to be noticing that the future of human life, millions of species, and the natural world as we know it is at stake. Meanwhile, real-life climate change impacts keep accelerating beyond what any gradualist climate policies can match.

As Trump primes millions of Americans to enter climate emergency mode, the movement for a safe climate is only growing stronger.

It's time for the climate and progressive movements to fight for action that's radical enough to match common sense. We're uniting behind the approach with the strongest chance of achieving justice and a healthy environment for all people: a WWII-scale emergency mobilization to reach 100% clean energy and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions within the next decade, guarantee 100% employment in a sustainable economy, and begin restoring a safe climate for all of us!
