THREE ACTIVISTS WORKING TO DEFEND THE PLANET

Thursday, August 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

THREE ACTIVISTS WORKING TO DEFEND THE PLANET

WHAT: Why we MUST march on Sept. 8th — and beyond:Three perspectives for REAL action on our climate crisis

WHEN: August 23, 2018, 7:00–9:00 PM

WHERE: San Francisco Unitarian – Universalist Center, Chapel. 1187 Franklin (at Geary), San Francisco

WHY: In 2015 the world came together in Paris, and progress has been made since. But with the US withdrawal from that summit’s agreement, what can WE do, in our daily lives, to help stop global warming? This forum will feature three activists representing different, but allied fields, all deeply concerned that we are not doing nearly enough. Please join us to explore possible steps for action and ways to start building hope for future generations.
