For our April People's Platform, we take action on principle #3, a right to health for people and the earth by joining the Put a Price On It DC Coalition for their Climate Day of Action!
Calling all students, professors, and D.C. residents who care about the future of our city!
We’re bringing EVERYONE together to descend on the D.C. Council Building just before Earth Week to urge our Councilmembers to support and pass a carbon fee-and-rebate policy.
On April 13, we’ll kick off an action-packed day with a rally at 1:00 pm outside the Wilson Building led by students and professors from across D.C. Then at 2:00 pm we’ll head inside to lobby for the proposed carbon rebate bill. We'll meet our legislators face to face to showcase the students urging the D.C. Council to protect their futures.
Everyone who cares about the future of the city is invited to join and support the students as we work together to pass a carbon fee-and-rebate this year. We need your help to ensure we have a great turn out!
