Extinction Rebellion

On Saturday, January 26, 2019, Extinction Rebellion D.C. will join in solidarity with 25 other Extinction Rebellion groups around the country by running a nonviolent direct action. 

Activists, including those from Climate First!, will gather in Washington, D.C. on "Rebellion Day 1" to demand that the federal government: 1) stop lying to the American people about climate change; and 2) enact measures that will enable the world to avoid the impending climate catastrophe. PLEASE BE AWARE that some activists will be engaging in civil disobedience, and will likely be arrested in this nonviolent direct action.   

When: Saturday, January 26, 2019, 12 pm to 3 pm   
Where: Pershing Park, 15th Street & Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, D.C.
Who: Extinction Rebellion D.C., and allies.

For more info, go to Extinction Rebellion D.C. If you plan on attending this direct action, please RSVP.  

Please spread the word! For our government to begin to listen to our demands, we need as many people as possible to engage in our XR events.
