XR is kicking off our new Emergency Everywhere campaign!
We are spreading out from the City of Boston - which declared a climate health emergency earlier this year, to surrounding cities and towns. We want them to both declare a climate emergency and begin to proactively tell the truth about the urgency of the crisis.
The Action Working Group has created a sequence of ~4 actions that can be replicated in each city/town - or customized for a local context. These actions escalate in intensity as we pressure the government to meet our demands. Here is a video that explains the campaign in detail.
And here is a shorter overview document.
We are looking for people who want to participate in a campaign in their town! We are already organizing campaigns in Worcester, Wellesley, Arlington, Somerville, Watertown, Chelmsford, and Newburyport.
If you would like to participate in one of these towns or help organize a campaign in your town, please email us at XRfirstname.lastname@example.org or go to the campaign site and click into your town.
Love and rage y'all.
