March for a Clean Energy Revolution
On the Eve of the Democratic National Convention, elders will march with thousands of others as part of the March for a Clean Energy Revolution -- to prevent climate catastrophe and present the following demands to current and future policy makers:
- Ban Fracking Now
- Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground
- Stop Dirty Energy
- Environmental Justice For All
- Quickly & Justly Transition to 100% Renewable Energy
We Come Together to Stand as Elders
-- as elders have always done for their communities -- for all children and for those who are waiting to be born in the ages to come. For their sake we March for a Clean Energy Revolution so that there will be for them, as there was for us, blue sky, fruitful land, clear waters, and a thriving and just world for all.
We invite all who wish to stand and march for future generations to join us.
The March begins at the Philadelphia City Hall at 1pm, on Sunday, July 24th; and then proceeds for one mile to Independence Mall where there will be a Rally.
JOIN US so that we can work together to create a strong voice for elders and create a healthy world for future generations.

NEXT ORGANIZING CALL:
You are invited to join us for an Elders Marching organizing meeting on Wednesday, June 22nd, 12 noon, eastern time. This will be time to consider if we want to plan a pre-march activity at 12 noon, i.e. singing our “climate song,” and what organizing is needed to insure an outstanding turnout of elders. The call in number is 641-715-3298, access code: 22003#.
