About the event :
What happens in 2018 will be up to you.
In 2017 there were constant assaults to our climate and communities from the Trump administration and their fossil fuel billionaire pals. But together we fought back against every attack.
In 2018, we’ll need to keep our eyes on the prize, and take the fight to the local level. We’re launching the year with fire in our bellies and a plan we believe in. On January 31st, the day after Trump’s first State of the Union, movement leaders and community organizers will gather in Washington D.C. to share our plan to win.
You can tune in to watch Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance via livestream on January 31st in your town or city — join a watch party near you or sign up to host one.
The event will feature Senator Bernie Sanders, 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben, Rev. Lennox Yearwood from Hip Hop Caucus, Jacqueline Patterson from the NAACP, Cherri Foytlin from BOLD Louisiana, Adriana Voss-Andreae from 350PDX, Varshini Prakash from the Sunrise Movement, Jessica Lorena Rangel from Eyes of a Dreamer, and many other exciting speakers and performances. Thousands of people just like you will join watch parties around the country to learn more about the climate crisis and what some pipeline fighters, local climate champions and national progressive leaders are doing to fight back in 2018. And during your watch party, you can plot out what you need to do to win bold climate action in your hometown.
Join us on Jan 31st at a watch party near you — or if there isn’t one on the map yet, you can host one yourself. We’ll support you every step of the way to make your watch party a success.
The last year has been painful, and at times, hope has been hard to find. But the tide is turning in 2018. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that together, we are powerful.
Together, we can take on fossil fuel elites and their profit-driven destruction. Together we can build the Fossil Free world we need, with a fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy for all.
Are you ready for an epic 2018? We got this.
