About this event:

Created by laurie

Wayne Morse Federal Courthouse, 405 E. 8th Ave
On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, we will be in the streets across this country to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet.

Sat. Apr. 29 – Rally for a Climate of Safety in Eugene – Wayne Morse Federal Courthouse, 405 E. 8th Ave., 1:00 to 3:00 pm

Students will meet at noon at UO EMU to March to the Rally.

If you need to borrow a wheelchair for the Rally, call Elizabeth before April 24: 541-484-1456.

Our local Eugene event is being planned and led by youth climate leaders from UO Cascadia Action Network & Climate Justice League, as well leaders from Earth Guardians/350 High School clubs! There will be drummers, there will be dancers, there will be singing and food – all coming together to boldly say:

WE RESIST, WE BUILD, WE RISE – together! This is our community, and when any group doesn’t feel safe, it’s time to stand up to the bullies!

We are creating the world that we know is not only possible, but necessary, and we are doing it NOW, together!

A family-friend, peaceful event, with speakers, performing, tabling, food carts and more! The question isn’t “Are you coming?” The question is, “Who are you bringing?!”

Help wanted: Calling all Banner & Sign-Holders!! We NEED YOU the “day of” to proudly display the brilliant art that has been lovingly created for this event! Thanks for pitching in!

From the UO EMU at Noon: A March from the Amphitheater, led by our Youth Climate Champions & drumming. Dramatic arrival at the Federal Courthouse planned at 1:00! Meet at University and 13th!

Join us to prepare for the rally:
Final “Rally for a Climate of Safety” Mobilization Meeting #5 (Thursday, April 27) – 6:00 to 8:00 pm at First United Methodist Church, 1376 Olive St., Eugene.

We’re holding our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice! This is our moment. Let’s bring it on April 29th and beyond!
