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.
Ask 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.
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.
