RSVP: http://act.350.org/event/D12-solidarity_attend/11510 Let's take the streets and tell the state of Michigan: Keep fossil fuels in the ground and finance a just transition to 100% renewable energy! For too long have world leaders failed to take meaningful action on climate change. For too long has the state of Michigan lagged behind the rest of the country on meaningful climate action and justice. Climate change affects us all, and impacts people in poverty and people of color most. This is not acceptable. We need to transition to a clean energy state and protect those most vulnerable. This year is critical for creating a fair and sustainable future. As world leaders come together from 195 countries to Paris, they will be negotiating how to stop climate change and how to transition to a fossil-free world. Let's tell Michigan to do the same. We have marched through the streets of Detroit, demanding justice. We won't stop until we have it. Now we will march through Ann Arbor, demanding a just transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050. Climate change affects us all, and that's why we're calling on each and every one of you to come march with us and tell the state of Michigan to lead the way. We will gather in front of the Federal Building in Ann Arbor, march through downtown and the university's campus, ending with a rally on the Diag, where there will be refreshments to keep you warm. Our rally emcee is Ellen Loubert. Our rally speakers are: Yousef Rabhi, Ivette Perfecto, Gail Geisenhainer, V Epshteyn, Noor Ahmad, Nicholas Jansen, Ethan Wampler, Julia Wang and Alex Kendig. To Change Everything, It Takes Everyone. http://www.facebook.com/events/1618784095041652/
