WILPF Meeting: The Climate Crisis--Time to Demand Action

Aug 16 FRIDAY
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm

The global climate crisis is becoming more severe by the day. Europe is roasting. The Arctic is on fire. Greenland ice sheets are melting rapidly.

The global climate crisis is becoming more severe by the day. Yet, many governments - most notably the U.S. federal government - are acting as if nothing is happening. At best some are taking incremental baby steps to address what they mistakenly see as only a problem that will impact a distant future. As young climate activist Greta Thunberg explains it, we need to start immediately treating this existential problem as the emergency it is. Come listen to Gary White, founder of Extinction Rebellion San Mateo and Climate Reality Leader discuss the genesis, the consequences, the activism, and the solutions to this climate emergency.

WILPF is turning its attention to the climate as the existential crisis of our times. Join us at this interactive meeting where action is the focus.

The meeting begins at 7 PM with the Raging Grannies raging. At 6 PM, the Peace Center hosts a light community dinner. Bring something to share or not, and enjoy food and conversation.
