Hurricane Sandy has clearly shown us that we have to get serious about fighting climate change. The climate math is clear, the stakes couldn’t be higher, and it’s time to get to work building a strong climate movement. (For more on the math, catch Bill McKibben at the “Do the Math Tour” on November 15 at the Orpheum theater.)
That’s why we’re helping people form small “affinity groups” for social action, support, and community-building.
Imagine six months from now a social movement that no longer waits for elected politicians to lead and engages in direct action against the fossil fuel industry. To build this movement, we need to come together to form affinity groups — i.e. small groups of friends and neighbors that can engage in creative nonviolent action and lean on each other for support in the months and years to come. Read more about affinity groups here.
Join us on November 20 in Cambridge, to learn more and get involved! (Exact location TBA.)
