CORRECTION: The original email didn't have the start time listed for the potluck, it will be 3pm on May 31st at the 350DC office.
Over the past few years, our community in Washington DC has done an incredible job fighting climate change and working to create a better and more sustainable future. DC activists and volunteers have planned bird dogs, press events at the White House, lobby days and have supported and recruited for actions bringing thousands of people together to be a voice for a clean environment and economy.
In the coming weeks, 350 DC will be stepping into another tar sands fight. This time, it is the Alberta Clipper pipeline, a project that is every bit as bad for our environment as Keystone XL and other such fossil fuel monstrosities. Communities in Canada and across the Midwest have been hard at work organizing against Clipper and on June 6th, they will meet in Saint Paul, MN for the biggest anti-tar sands action in their region.
The Tar Sands Resistance March will be a huge moment for the climate movement in the Midwest and beyond, but the people who have the decision making power to stop the Alberta Clipper are in Washington DC. This project must go through the same approval process as Keystone XL, so Secretary Kerry and President Obama both have opportunities to put a stop to this pipeline once and for all.
350 DC is going to have a potluck and art party on May 31st to talk about what we can do in the fight against the Alberta Clipper in the coming weeks. Can you join us?
Who: 350 DC and climate activists in the DMV.
What: Potluck and Party
Office, 1 St. Matthew's Court
When: 3pm on May 31st.
Hope to see you there!
