President Obama: Keep Your Promises.
There will be two big actions in Washington, DC on July 26th and 27th!
Friday, July 26th we're planning a flashy, powerful act of civil disobedience on K Street at noon. We've picked a corporate target and we're going to make the world hear us in protesting their role in supporting KXL. If you are interested in being a part of the civil disobedience on the morning of July 26th, you will need to be in DC for a training on Thursday evening (starting at 6 pm) at Saint Stephen and the Incarnation Church.
Saturday, July 27th: Rally for Independence from Fossil Fuels. On Saturday, July 27 walkers will leave St Stephens Church at 9:30 am, walk through Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park on 16th Street (which has a statue of Joan of Arc on horseback with a sword pointed toward the White House), and then proceed the 2 miles to Lafayette Park across form the White House.
The Rally for Independence from Fossil Fuels will take place at 11:30 am in Lafayette Park. The theme of the rally will be our collective responsibility to each other, our children and the earth's future - and our request for President Obama to keep his promises on climate change and to protect the future generations of children by rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline. The rally will feature youth from iMatter and elsewhere, who will tell stories of the impact of climate change on their communities, and they will discuss their federal lawsuit. Bill McKibben will be one of the speakers.

When: July 26th and 27th
Why: To challenge fossil fuel industry lies and call on President Obama to keep his promises to us and our children by confronting the challenge of climate change.
