Watch the livestream: Part 1
As Greta Thunberg said, “This is a crisis. We have to act like our house is on fire, because it is.”
She’s right, just like the young people from Standing Rock, the kids on the islands disappearing under the Pacific and in Houston and Flint and Kern County and so many other places. They’re all right. This is an urgent, major crisis. And they’re asking our help.
That’s why Jane Fonda has moved to Washington, DC. Every Friday for the next 4 months at 11am in front of the US Capitol, Jane will be joined by scientists, movement leaders, experts, activists, Indigenous leaders, and community members to answer the alarm sounded by young people and demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency.
We need and deserve a world beyond fossil fuels while creating millions of family-sustaining, union jobs, and prioritizing justice and equity for working people and communities of color on the frontlines of climate disaster and fossil fuel exploitation, so the clean energy transformation leaves nobody behind.
We can no longer stand by and let our elected officials ignore - and even worse - empower - the industries that are destroying our planet for profit. We can not continue to stand for this.
Join us this Friday to launch Fire Drill Fridays at 11am ET and every Friday after!
