Wendell Berry, Bill McKibben, Gus Speth and other giants of environmental activism are in Washington, D.C., to issue a rallying cry for strong climate action tonight, just hours before the start of Power Shift Lobby Day and the historic mass civil disobedience at the Capitol Power Plant.
Tonight's event at Lisner Auditorium is sold out, but you don't have to miss the evening of poetry, discussion and inspiration.
Join us to watch the live video starting at 6:30 p.m. ET and go to Chesapeake Climate Action's blog to participate in an online discussion as Berry, McKibben and Speth are joined by activists and authors including Terry Tempest Williams and Janisse Ray, the Rev. Lennox Yearwood of the Hip Hop Caucus, and musicians Kathy Mattea and Here's to the Long Haul.
Chesapeake Climate Action will also be posting a full recording of the event on its CCAN blog immediately afterward to be viewed at any time.
