Heading for Extinction (And What To Do About It)
We’re living in a time of global crisis, bearing witness to the effects of our government’s inability to respond to the existential threats of the climate and ecological emergency, the COVID-19 pandemic and the ravages of a long history of systemic racism. Facing these threats alone can be overwhelming. Join us to hear how Extinction Rebellion is bringing people together to act now and avoid total climate breakdown.
This talk will lay out the basic climate science that drives our urgency to act and outline how we can use nonviolent direct action to demand change. Whether you’re interested in joining Extinction Rebellion or just curious about what’s happening to the climate, come to hear more about what humanity is facing in the next decade, what has to happen to prevent catastrophe, and connect with others who are wrestling with these truths.
The presentation will end around 8pm, with a little time for discussion/questions afterward.
