The young activists organizing the #FossilFreeNEAQ campaign to encourage the New England Aquarium to divest from fossil fuels invite you to a potluck and climate justice video screening! The fossil fuel industry is one of the biggest contributors to climate change in ways that impact people as well as the environment. Globally, black and brown communities already disproportionately feel the impacts of climate change.
A #FossilFreeNEAQ will serve as a role model for important community institutions nationwide, shifting public opinion and decreasing the influence of the fossil fuel industry. For our campaign, we have held a teach-in outside of the aquarium and were able to gain over 200 petition signatures in just a few hours-- that number is now over 500!
On Monday, we will be hosting a potluck to share great food and conversation, while watching several climate justice videos. After each video, we will have time for reflection and discussion.
All interest levels are welcome. And feel free to bring food to share! Contact [email protected]
with any questions.
We hope you can make it!!!
