About this event:
What happens in 2018 will be up to you.
In 2017 there were constant assaults to 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.
On January 31st, the day after Trump’s first State of the Union, our movement will come together for Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance.
350 Eugene will be hosting a livestream party-6:00-8:00 pm
Location: Whirled Pies, 199 W 8th and Charnelton
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 just like you will join watch parties around the country 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. And during your watch party, you can plot out what you need to do to win bold climate action in your hometown.
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.
