Postponed to Sat 9/5: Arlington Emergency Everywhere Kickoff Shoe Strike

Aug 29

Because of inclimate weather, this event is postponed to Sat Sept 5.

Join us to declare: GLOBAL CLIMATE EMERGENCY EVERYWHERE !!

We are holding a shoes strike in Arlington in collaboration with Arlington Fridays for Future (FFF) to launch our Emerency Everywhere campaign to pressure the Town of Arlington to start actively telling the truth about the crisis. The shoes symbolize our presence in large numbers to call for climate action, including even people who cannot attend in person for reasons of COVID safety. #ShoeStrike29AUG
