Newburyport Emergency Everywhere Shoe Strike Day #3 - Primary Day


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 Brown Park across the street from City Hall on primary day in Newburyport #ShoeStrike1Sept

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 - Tuesday September 1, 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 Tuesday, September 1st... 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 #ShoeStrike1Sept tag
