Future Actions

2019

Fridays through January 10, 2020
Washington, D.C., Fire Drill Fridays

Codepink has joined with Jane Fonda to sponsor Fire Drill Fridays and demand urgent action to avert the worst of climate change. Each Friday at 11 a.m. through mid-January will feature a rally in front of the Capitol building and opportunity for civil disobedience while addressing the multitude of issues related to climate change. Although there were no arrests reported on November 8, the day focused on war and climate change, the December 13 action will highlight climate change and transition to a peace economy.
