Climate change affects us all. As the President said in his climate change speech, “The question now is whether we will have the courage to act before it’s too late. And how we answer will have a profound impact on the world that we leave behind not just to you, but to your children and to your grandchildren.”
A non-profit group, Organizing for Action (OFA), is rallying a groundswell of support for President Obama’s Climate Action Plan. They are kicking off a National “I Will Act on Climate” Bus Tour as part of a concerted effort to generate widespread discussion and action.
The tour begins today, July 11, in Tennessee.
All along the tour, you are invited to join with local leaders to learn more about the President’s Climate Action plan and lend your support by making a video postcard or writing a letter. See the tips for writing a letter to your editor on our website!
Come join them in Asheville on Friday, July 12! Hosted by Southern Alliance for Clean Energy and the Sierra Club, everyone is invited to come to Pack Square Park in Asheville 9:30 to 11:00 am. Families and children are welcome. There will be a children’s art project on display as well free coffee, juice and pastries for attendees.
Then it’s on to Greensboro that afternoon. This stop will be hosted by the League of Conservation Voters, Friday, July 12 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at the Morehead Building.
We will be broadcasting news of other stops in between Greensboro and the coast on the events page of our website. Check back frequently!
