Forward on Climate SC Bus Tickets
Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 6:00 AM - Sunday, February 17, 2013 at 4:00 PM (EST)
In the context of a rapidly changing climate, the Sierra Club and 350.org are co-sponsoring the Forward on Climate Rally to demand that President Obama creates a strong climate policy.
The rally will take place in Washington, D.C., during Presidents' Day weekend (Sunday, February 17).
We will all be playing a pivotal role to make it the largest climate rally in the history of the United States with an expected attendance of over 20,000.
With President Obama about to begin his second term, it is critical that he hears from his constituents about the importance of championing strong climate policy.
