Concerned about global warming, extreme weather events and mass species extinction but don’t know what to do about it? Here’s a chance to show that despite the actions of a handful of large corporations, Houston cares about our collective future. In solidarity with the People’s Climate March in New York, join us to celebrate (and help inaugurate) the emergence of a new global movement around climate change with an irreverent march in downtown of The Energy Capital of the World (home of 5,000 energy companies) next Friday, September 19th, at 3:00. With drums, puppeteers, cyclists and oil-tarred hula hoopers, we’ll be parading from City Hall (by the reflecting pool) to the downtown HQ of an oil company to thank the government and fossil fuel corporations for delivering an endless Houston summer to the rest of the United States. We’ll conclude by marching right on down to happy hour at the Last Concert Cafe.
For all the miles we’ve all driven and flown, why not take off from work a few hours early on September 19th to walk a mile with us?
There will be an Art Making Party for Houston’s Climate March. Signs, puppets, costumes, galore! Sunday September 14th from 3 – 6 PM at 4626 Redstart Street, Houston, TX, 77035. Bring your art supplies and your creativity!Get Directions via Google Maps
