MARCH for a Clean Energy Revolution: Communities of Faith and Spirit

July 24, 2016 @ 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The Republican National Convention takes place out of state (Ohio July 18-21), but the Democratic National Convention will be in PA (Philadelphia) July 25-28.

We need our political leaders to prioritize fast and fair climate action on all fronts, including acting to keep fossil fuels in the ground so we’re joining a coalition making the call for clean energy visible.

Screen Shot 2016-06-17 at 4.03.35 PMAsk your congregation to endorse and join you in the faith contingent of the March for a Clean Energy Revolution. Before the march, switch your electricity to cleaner sources so your banners can say so (and encourage others to step up!).

March convenes at 12:00 noon on Sunday, July 24 at City Hall.
Rally at Independence Mall anticipated at about 2:00 PM.

If you live in the Philadelphia area, could you (household or congregation) provide housing for 1 person or a group? Contact us.  There are buses traveling from around Pennsylvania.

Find delegates from your area for each party, communicate your climate commitments and ask that they make fast and fair climate action a platform priority. DNC superdelegates listed here, PA county party chairs here. RNC PA delegates are here.  The RNC does not have superdelegates.

PA IPL leaders will be part of a panel at a justice-focused summit the day before the march, and are actively taking place in the faith-focused parts of the march planning.
