Time Change to SUNDAY 11:45am to 1pm

It's a climate emergency everywhere! Including Newburyport!

We are holding a shoes strike in Newburyport in alignment with other XR shoes actions on the same day 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 coivd-safe and highly visible in the waterfront area of Newburyport #ShoeStrike30Aug

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.
