In Person Dates to create a Rising Tide of pressure on the legislature
Join us for the first Friday of the legislative session, January 7th at noon for a first wave of climate protest “washing up” at the Vermont statehouse. Come to the statehouse on February 4th for a bigger wave of climate advocacy, and when the "earth in space” petition is delivered to legislators in support of the Bottle Bill, the Right to Repair and making large corporations responsible. Sign up with VPIRG for updates on the February day of advocacy www.vpirg.org/signup sign the digital version of the petition here: https://chng.it/dMq7dd87b5
Please share widely with people & groups who may be interested in this invitation to artivism! Write a letter, make a plastic trash ‘wave’ banner, make a message to legislators to let them know that now is the time for laws that incentivize better, cleaner, greener packaging, materials, & systems change. Transform the despair of climate change into action. Background information: https://www.rebeccaschwarz.com/calltoaction
