ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS THROW DAY PARTY
to help Dorian victims, urge Tillis and Burr to #ActOnClimate
WHAT: PORCH PARTY for OUR PLANET
WHEN: Friday, September 6, 1 to 5 p.m.
WHERE: The Outpost, 306 E. Hargett Street, Raleigh, then Sen. Tillis’ Raleigh office, 310 New Bern Avenue, Suite 122 (see schedule below)
WHO: Climate Action Campaign, a partnership of Environment North Carolina, North Carolina Interfaith Power and Light, and the North Carolina League of Conservation Voters
WHY: When it comes to protecting North Carolina from rising seas, heat waves, and dirty air, U.S. Senators Tillis and Burr have been total flops. We’re collecting goods to help those impacted by Hurricane Dorian while calling on Tillis and Burr to #ActOnClimate to reduce the severity and frequency of future storms.
With Hopscotch Music Festival in town, we’re having a beach-themed party in hopes that future generations in Raleigh don’t have to deal with encroaching beach-front property.
The event is free and open to the public. Concerned citizens can enjoy music from four local bands (see schedule below), with free food from Dank Burrito and drinks from Big Boss Brewing, and The Outpost.
Attendees will also fill out flip-flop postcards with messages for Burr and Tillis. At 3:45, we will march to Tillis’ office a few blocks away, and deliver those messages to him.
1 p.m.: Whit Grumhaus & The Chasers
2 p.m.: Duck
3 p.m.: Bruce Randall Bickford
4 p.m.: Debonzo Brothers
