After Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement, many local leaders around the country – including Mayor Muriel Bowser – signed their cities and states onto the agreement, proclaiming loudly, “We are still in.” 

Words are great, but DC needs meaningful action. A commitment to upholding the spirit of the Paris Agreement means stopping new fossil fuel infrastructure and rapidly moving to create good jobs here in the District by moving to 100% renewable energy – but Mayor Bowser and the DC Council have yet to back up these words with policies moving in that direction. 

Join us on November 18th at the White House to condemn Trump & co for their reckless actions, and then march with us to the Wilson Building to call on Mayor Bowser and DC Council to lead where the federal government will not.

*We'll be putting objects into a 50-year time capsule to record our response to climate change, and air and water polution. We'll celebrate everything we love about DC.
