Forward on Climate Rally in DC, Sun. Feb. 17

Forward on Climate Rally

When: Sunday, February 17th, at 12 Noon
Where: The National Mall, Washington D.C.
Who: 350.org, The Sierra Club and the Hip-Hop Caucus

Why: To tell Barack Obama it's time to lead in the fight against climate change, beginning with the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

At 12 Noon on Sunday, February 17, thousands of Americans will head to Washington, D.C. to make Forward on Climate the largest climate rally in history. Join this historic event to make your voice heard and help the president start his second term with strong climate action.

Crippling drought. Devastating wildfires. Superstorm Sandy. Climate has come home – and the American people get it.

The first step to putting our country on the path to addressing the climate crisis is for President Obama to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. His legacy as president will rest squarely on his response, resolve, and leadership in solving the climate crisis.

For more information about rides, housing and answers to Frequently Asked Questions, visit http://forwardonclimate.org

Just over a year ago, 15,000 people surrounded the White House -- and President Obama listened, delaying the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. This is our best chance to show the President how strong this movement has become since then -- sign up today.

    The event was inspiring. To be in the presence of 35K+ people was an awesome experience. The speakers were all eloquent and moving. Had it not been SO cold (at least for me, a recent transplant from Arizona), I would have taken my hands out of my pocket long enough to take pictures but, I was so uncomfortably cold! There were many, many people with cameras there. I trust that beautiful pictures will emerge!
