Whistle Stop Rally for the People’s Climate March

Cheer on the Colorado marchers & hear from activists traveling to NYC

Tuesday, September 16th, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Union Station, Denver, CO

When the world’s leaders gather in New York this fall to discuss climate change, tens of thousands of people will be there to urge them to take action before it’s too late. The People’s Climate March in NYC, happening Sunday, Sept. 21st, will be the largest climate march in history.

Our allies at 350 Colorado are organizing a Whistle Stop Rally when the People’s Climate Train comes through Denver on it’s way to the march. We’re celebrating those going to NYC – both those already on the train and the Coloradans joining them. Train riders from CO and elsewhere will speak and there will be music, songs and more. We’re encouraging folks to wear green or blue. They’ll distribute Earth flags to wave and kazoos.

Ride the Train

Organizers with the Center for Biological Diversity are turning an Amtrak into a climate activists’ train going from West Coast to the East. It will feature workshops and plenty of camaraderie. Participants will arrive in NYC Thursday evening, in time for the build-up actions over the weekend before the People’s Climate March on Sunday, Sept. 21.

350.org Climate Solutions Social Hour

Meet Some Environmentally Awesome Folks!

Thursday, August 28th, 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Bohemian Biergarten
2017 13th St, Boulder, CO
RSVP Here

From our friends at 350.org Boulder:

Hashing out our biggest ideas over perogies, friends, and cold drinks? Yes, yes and yes! We’ve officially decided to keep the social hour at the Biergarten. Because we love it there and we know you do, too.

We’re really looking forward to this month’s meetup since we’re getting close to election season and harvest is in full swing. Lots going on to talk about! Plus, who doesn’t want to get a beer and hang out with awesome people in Boulder, summer time style?

If you’re new to the group:

Each month we get together for drinks to make new friends and brainstorm ways to make Boulder County a more sustainable, healthy place to live. All are welcome, even if you aren’t living in Boulder County currently. We want to hear your ideas!

Some of the things we talk about include: local food & urban farming, breweries, alternative transportation, renewable energy, fracking, goats!, current events, skill shares, bees, potluck dinners, water, Boulder County issues, and the list goes on… Be sure to check the calendar to find out where we will be meeting since it changes monthly.

*Don’t forget to plan ahead and take public transit or carpool (or even better, bike!) to make it on time and save some carbon. Can’t find a ride? Reach out to the group. And as always, be sure to set up safe transportation home.

See you there!
