Sunrise Lansing Strike Circle

Date: 
Wed, Feb 12, 2020 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

City:

To win a Green New Deal, we need to think BIG

Our movement is powerful. In the last two years, we’ve taken climate change from the sidelines to center stage. We’ve elected progressive champions. We’ve made the Green New Deal the leading solution to the climate crisis. Our movement has grown exponentially.

This is just the beginning. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth day. The very first earth day, millions of people went on strike for a livable future. Earth day has since been co-opted by big businesses, using it as a branding opportunity. This year, we are taking Earth day back. Thousands in Lansing will go on strike for a Green New Deal. The message will be clear: any politician, from the city council to the national debate stage, who wants our vote must implement a Green New Deal.

But if we’re serious about ushering in the decade of the Green New Deal, we know that we’re nowhere BIG enough. We need to grow our numbers to the millions! We need folx from all corners of Lansing to take on leadership and join our strike circle! We will be building power by talking to our communities, sharing our stories, and taking direct action, all leading up to the biggest climate strike this world has ever seen.

We will be meeting at the Fledge February 12th from 6-7:30PM. Food will be provided!
