6/5/17: Your Weekly Activist Events Roundup

This week in headlines was particularly bleak for the planet at large: while Trump held fast to his campaign promise of withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord, global warming barreled ahead, and the Earth continued its warming as scheduled. And while the rest of the world banned together to help protect this lovely little planet on which we reside, Trump (and, consequently, the US), took one giant step backwards.

We’re here to stand against Trump’s antics and stand up for what’s right—environmentally and otherwise. Ready to join the resistance in NYC? See below.
