 People's Climate Movement 
Day of National Action

Wednesday, Oct.14 
Events in Washington and Baltimore
Continue the momentum started by the 2014 People Climate March.
  • DC  March: Washington houses the most formidable culprits of climate change as well as frontline communities feeling the worst of its impacts. Help give DC a big, bold voice in this movement. A march will begin at 4:30 p.m. at  Franklin Square, 1301 K St. NW.  Info  & rsvp here.   Facebook page here.
  • In Baltimore, create a Dear Governor Hogan video: Gov. Larry Hogan canceled groundbreaking air quality protections for Baltimore and cut funding for the Red Line mass transit plan. Soon, he will be in a position to make decisions on climate policy, community-driven power initiatives, and fair development. Stop by the Baltimore Sierra Club office between 5 and 7:30 p.m. to record a short, powerful Dear Governor Hogan video letter to demand that he protect our right to a livable future. Potluck dinner and fellowship follows. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share if you are able. Info and rsvp here.

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) 
Thursday, Oct .15, morning meeting

FERC approves the pipelines, compressors and export facilities that harm communities and keep fracked gas moving around the country -- and eventually the world. The monthly public meetings offer no opportunity for anyone other than industry reps to speak, but Beyond Extreme Energy has interrupted the proceedings with pleas for action on climate every month. Those who speak are quickly forced to leave and then barred from future meetings. BXE needs new climate heroes willing to speak truth to the FERC. If interested, please call Don at 215-292-4110.
