Thanks so much for registering to join us tomorrow for the Biden Declare a Climate Emergency: Joye Braun Day of Action in Raleigh! Taking place outside the Terry Sanford Federal Building (310 New Bern Ave), the rally begins at 12:30 pm on the corner of New Bern and Person Street.
We’ll be one of 27 actions taking place in 17 states and 1 in Germany (as of last night)! Bring signs with the theme of climate emergency, Stop MVP, climate justice, and more. We’ll also have some extra signs. **In Raleigh signs and banners are limited to 3’x3’.
Speakers and singers tomorrow include Donna Chavis, Jim Warren, Ziyad Habash, Denzel Burnside, Triangle Raging Grannies, Michael Flaherty, and Randa McNamara. Jan from Paperhand made a set of letters that spell the phrase ” Biden declare a climate emergency” for a group action and photo op. Happy to have great visuals and songs to go along with our great speakers!
Loved seeing this video that features Joye from a 350.org email a few days ago promoting the day of action, where they highlight Joye:
“In 2017, after Trump tried to resurrect Keystone XL, Joye played a major role in Solar XL: a first-of-its-kind community effort that successfully built solar directly in the path of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. 350 was proud to work on this project with Joye and frontline partners across Nebraska and South Dakota. We defeated Keystone XL, and Solar XL still remains. To learn more, you can watch this 8-minute film featuring Joye that takes you to the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota and beyond.”
I noticed some of your names on the webinar last night, but if you missed the beautiful Spark Joy(e), Extinguish Fossil Fuels Virtual Kick-off Rally, here’s a link to the recording.
Look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Peace and love for our beautiful Earth, Karen Bearden
