Direct Action vs. Climate Change: A night of scheming and dreaming with Rising Tide

California is being ravaged by fracking, industrial agriculture and drought. Oil spills in Santa Barbara and, most recently, Northern California have polluted our natural landscape. The oil lobby has continued to pour millions of dollars into state politics. Gov. Brown remains pro-fracking, pro-oil and pro-coal export terminal despite his assertions of “climate leadership.”

How do we catalyze radical action on the climate in California?

Direct action is everywhere. In May, thousands took action to Break Free from Fossil Fuels in one of the largest global coordinated climate actions in history. Almost a year ago in San Francisco, thousands flooded Wall Street West in a mass civil disobedience against the economic system driving the climate crisis. In the Northwest, kayaktivists have flooded into the waterways of Seattle and Portland to stop Shell's Arctic drilling. In Paris at the UN climate talks, thousands told the world's leaders that they must act on climate and keep fossil fuels in the ground.

We see that when we act boldly, with courage and with our hearts, the world notices.

Diablo Rising Tide and friends invite you to join them for a night of storytelling, plotting and scheming. They'll show their presentation and then start a conversation on where we can go next.

Bring your friends, get ready to take action. RSVP: HERE
