Moving Connecticut: A Day To Get Beyond Fossil Fuels
State-wide Action on the New Haven Green, New Haven, CT – Sat 9/24 @ 4pm – http://350CT.org/move
UPDATE: We’ll be MOVING CONNECTICUT rain or shine! Meet us at the green — if there’s heavy rain, we’ll move to our indoor site. Check 350ct.org/move for up-to-the-minute updates, and make sure to get on our email list — that’s where we’ll send announcements and updates.
Our communities are ready for a clean energy future, and it’s time to rally the troops! On September 24 join people from across the state and a fast-growing coalition of civic organizations, faith communities, non-profits and businesses as we converge on New Haven with one common goal: moving past fossil fuels to a brighter future and a healthier planet. Many towns are hosting events in the morning, and then we’ll all come together on the New Haven Green at 4pm on 9/24 for a rally, critical mass bike ride, music, talkback with local/state political leaders, opportunities to get involved in your community, and a bike-powered outdoor screening of the movie Wall-E!
Around the globe glaciers are melting, crops are failing, and extreme weather is becoming the norm. Moving Connecticut is part of 350.org’s “Moving Planet” global day of action, and together with others around the world we will show our leaders on 9/24 that our state is ready to leave dirty energy behind and make the rapid, responsible transition to clean energy that our world needs. 9/24 Moving CT is about showing our numbers, showing our resolve, and showing that we are already making a real difference with solutions like cycling and sustainable transportation, saving energy, community gardens and local farming, tree plantings, and faith-based stewardship.
That’s why we need you in New Haven on 9/24, even if it takes a little bit of carbon to get you here. This is the chance for our grassroots movement to make a bold statement — one that will make waves here in Connecticut and inspire millions around the world. We need you to join us and reach out to your friends and to organizations to tell them 9/24 is not-to-be-missed! 350 Connecticut is a grassroots all-volunteer organization, and whether you can spend 10 minutes or 10 hours, your time will make a difference.
