First things first:

Join us tonight for what’s sure to be an inspirational national call with our partners at the Energy Action Coalition as we launch what’s bound to be a huge year for the youth sustainability movement! Featuring the Sierra Club’s Michael Brune, Idle No More’s Crystal Lameman, and student organizers of the Power Up! National Divestment Convergence, this is one you’re going to want to listen in on. RSVP now, and join us at 5:00PM PST. The number is (916) 235-1003 and passcode: 655362# OR 475172#.

You might have heard about the HUGE “Forward on Climate” rally planned by 350.org, Sierra Club and Hip Hop Caucus for February 17th in Washington D.C.–the largest climate rally in history!

We encourage everyone to attend the D.C. rally (http://act.350.org/signup/presidentsday), but for those unable to make the journey you can still stand in solidarity and make history right here in California.
