During the First 100 Hours of the New Administration
Stand Together for Climate Action on Monday Morning, January 23, 2016 from 7:30 to 9:00 AM
The Walpole Peace and Justice Group is joining with the People’s Climate Movement and other environmental and faith groups in holding a vigil to “Stand Together for Climate Action” on Monday, January 23, 2016 from 7:30 to 9:00 AM in Walpole at the corner of West and Main Street. It is one of many vigils being held in the first 100 hours of the new administration to draw attention to the issues of climate justice, show support for bold action, and to oppose any attacks on our air, water, atmosphere, economy, health, and families. Climate change is not a partisan issue, and we stand together in recognition that all of our beliefs and faith traditions call us to be stewards of the earth. We are responsible for urgent action on behalf of the planet and our most vulnerable frontline communities. The vigil is an opportunity for all of us to join together to bear witness to the destruction of our climate and to call for responsible action at all levels, from individual through federal government.
