October 10, 2010 "10-10-10" is the Global Day of Climate Action of www.350.org.
see world.350.org/dc [Note - no "www"]

There are several activities, see below. Perhaps the main event early in the afternoon is a White House Rally 12:30-2pm. BTW President Obama has agreed to install solar energy on the White House, after some staffers had told Bill McKibben of 350.org that there would be no solar power on the White House, a few weeks ago.

At the end of the day is a Communty Potluck Dinner at Bread for the City, 1525 7th Street NW, between Convention Center and Shaw/Howard stops on the Green/Yellow lines of Metro. They also have events at Bread for the City all afternoon.
