What is missing that could break the gridlock on Climate Change?
The unified voice of the Elders!
We are a campaign, a movement of elders committed to making our voices heard...to change our nation’s energy policies while there is still time to avoid catastrophic changes in the Earth’s climate.
Because of this concern and because we are the largest voting bloc, we elders are in an unique position to influence national policy and can use that power to push for policies that will reduce greenhouse gases to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet.
ELDERS CLIMATE ACTION DAY IS COMING!
May 1 & 2, 2017 in Washington DC!
Elders Climate Action Day in Washington, DC - More Important than Ever!
The recent election does not need to dash our hopes. Instead, it is an invitation to build a national movement to address Global Warming. We, as elders, have a vital role in the success of that movement.
We gather for our second Elders Climate Action Day (ECAD) in Washington, DC May 1-2. We will hear from national leaders, such as Congressman-Elect Jamie Raskin of Maryland, and present each Member of Congress with our legislative agenda.
We want the ECAD program to meet all your hopes and expectations, so please fill out the attached questionnaire. For those who can come a few days early, we understand there will be a People's Climate March in Washington, Saturday, April 29, 2017 and, on Sunday, an eye-opening conference on how biodiversity and ecosystem restoration can help address climate change.
None of us need be an expert on Climate Change to make a difference; we just need to demonstrate our determination and commitment to our children, grandchildren and continued life on planet Earth. We are the elders, we have patience, passion, and wisdom and we care deeply about future generations.
This year our Elders Climate Action Day will be the formal kickoff for a series of ECAD events around the country. We hope to have community events in a location near you beginning in the summer of 2017.
JOIN US IN MAY AND BE A PART OF THE MOVEMENT THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN CLIMATE CHANGE!
