Earth Week Emergency Parade and Action
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO SATURDAY 4/24 DUE TO SUNDAY'S POOR WEATHER
Earth Week 2021: Climate Emergency Parade and Action!
Join us for an Earth Day celebration and our next chapter-wide action on Saturday, April 24th, the end of Earth Week.
This Earth Day, we will celebrate the beauty and bounty of the earth and also fight hard to protect it.
Massachusetts recently passed Climate Bill S.9 to move our 2050 carbon emissions reductions from 80% to 100%. While this is the largest climate bill in the last 13 years, it is incredibly insufficient given what we now know about our carbon budget. We have under 7 years for our 3 degrees f (1.5 degrees c) carbon budget. A slow transition over 30 years doesn't cut it.
Our event will begin at the Massachusetts Statehouse in Boston with a couple of speakers and some climate disco (a choreographed dance party in the name of Earth). We will then parade around the City of Boston to express gratitude for our planet and its biodiversity while also pushing the state and city for immediate action on the Climate and Ecological Emergency. This event will be "Emergency" themed filled with climate firefighters, dancing, and lively music. The parade will end with XR flair!
Climate can't wait; 2050 is too late. We demand that the City of Boston and State of Massachusetts declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency and act on it!
Masks and social distancing are required.
There is parking at the Boston Commons parking Garage.
