Elders Climate Action Day

Play-In with Moms Clean Air Force @ the Capitol

July 11, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Get ready for an intergenerational day of action! On July 11, 2019, grandparents, elders, parents and kids from across the country will gather near the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC to call for climate action. This family-friendly protest against the air pollution that causes dangerous climate change showcases exactly what’s at stake as temperatures and sea levels rise: our kids. The Elders & Moms know that kids can’t sit still, so we are ditching a traditional sit-in and holding the MCAF sixth annual Play-In. Find us at the National Mall at 3rd St NW & Madison Dr NW.  The Elders will be in our Green ECA T-shirt (included in your registration fee) and mom’s and kids will be in MCAF red T-shirts so that everyone will know we’re there!

Intergenerational Lobby Day

July 11, afternoon

We will follow the Play-In by joining Moms Clean Air Force for intergenerational meetings with Members of Congress.
