Newburyport Emergency Everywhere Shoe Strike Day #2
It's a climate emergency everywhere! Including Newburyport!
We are holding a shoe strike in Newburyport in alignment with other XR shoes actions this week and the Fridays for Future shoe strikes. 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. We are going to be COVID-safe and highly visible in Newburyport's Market Square #ShoeStrike31Aug
This is the first action of Emergency Everywhere campaign to pressure the Town of Newburyport to start actively telling the truth about the crisis. You can find out more information about the campaign here.
TIME: 11:45-1:00 PM - Monday August 31, 2020
LOGISTICS: We want 50+ pairs of shoes! Please wear your face mask, respect the need for physical distancing, bring a cell phone (to take photos), lots of pairs of shoes, and your sign/message.
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PARTICIPATE 1: Drop off as many pairs of shoes as you wish at 11:45 AM on Monday, August 31st... and pick them back up at 1:15 PM 2: Set up your sign and your shoes, take a photo of your individual action, post it to your social media platform of choice with #ShoeStrike31Aug tag
