“Forward on Climate” Rally Feb. 17
We hope that you are coming and bringing others to the “Forward on Climate” Rally organized for President’s Day weekend, Sunday Feb. 17th.
What: The largest climate rally in history of the USA.
Where: The National Mall in Washington, D.C., including a march to the White House
When: February 17, 2013, Noon – 4:00 p.m. Please arrive by 11:30 a.m.
11:30-12:30, the multifaith contingent will gather outside the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden on the National Mall (between 7th and 9th Streets SW). Join folks from Maryland & Greater Washington Interfaith Power and Light on on the north/Mall side on the gravel pathway. The closest Metro station is L’Enfant Plaza (green, yellow, orange, or blue lines). Look for Tim Kumfer, of the Festival Center, and Rose Berger, of Sojourners, who will be carrying a large “dove” to help you find us in the crowd.
What to bring: Plan to bring a group from your congregation to join religious communities from around our area and across the country in speaking out for Creation at the Forward on Climate Rally on Presidents’ Day weekend. Bring congregational banners and wear congregational T-shirts.
By our strong participation on February 17th, we can make a loud statement about the growing determination of religious communities to be heard on this most deeply moral issue.
