Simply Living Meetup at People’s Climate Rally at Ohio Statehouse
April 29 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
NOTE: The March will begin at COSI (333 W. Broad St 43215) with sign making at 10 am. We will gather at 11 am for a welcome speech, and march to the Ohio Statehouse at 11:15 am. The tentative schedule can be found HERE.
Following our screening of A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet on April 25 – the brilliant film documenting the history of the environmental movement, our April Meetup calls us to action and participate in the People’s Climate Movement at the Ohio Statehouse rally on April 29. While some of us will be attending the People’s Climate March (PCM) in Washington DC on this same Saturday, we invite all our members and friends to join us at the PCM Sister march right here in Columbus! We will bring our Simply Living banner and encourage you to make and bring your own signs to the demonstration. We will join our partners in the Central Ohio Climate Action Coalition, including members from the Sierra Club, Interfaith Power & Light, local chapters of the Citizens Climate Lobby, local community sustainability groups, the Columbus Community Bill of Rights, Keep Wayne Wild, and many others concerned about climate change and environmental justice. We bring a positive message of change in advocating FOR the transition to a green infrastructure and renewable energy grid created by new green job opportunities!
