The climate and ecological emergencies have reached a crisis point: scientists are telling us we are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction event in Earth's history, and that we need rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society to avert catastrophic runaway warming. Extinction Rebellion is a global movement aiming to use nonviolent civil disobedience to force our governments to take action on the crisis.
On Thursday, March 27 at 6:30pm, join the DC chapter of Extinction Rebellion and Cedar Lane Universalist Unitarian Church for a public talk on the climate and ecological emergency, called Heading for Extinction and What To Do About It. The talk will cover the science that tells us we are running out of time to prevent unstoppable runaway heating, as well as ways that we can respond, both emotionally and practically. Understanding the severity of the situation is crucial to understand why we need radical action immediately.
Russell Gray will be presenting on behalf of Extinction Rebellion DC. Russell moved to DC after graduating from college to work for the Treasury Department. He quit that job in November 2018 to start working for Extinction Rebellion full-time. Two youth activists from Montgomery County, Eleanor and Rosie Clemens Cope, will be introducing the evening's program and sharing more about their work.
