This Earth Day Will be Different—15 Minutes to Come Together to Save the Climate

You're invited to participate in an Earth Day Climate Happening; a gathering that will, for just a few short minutes, bring together thousands of us who share a concern for the climate; a concern for our common future.

With your participation, the 2015 Columbia Area Earth Day Festival will provide a unique opportunity to focus the community's attention on the climate crisis, an existential threat we often don't talk about or give the attention it deserves.

"Come Together, Save the Climate!," will be a visible expression of our shared commitment to effective and prompt climate action.

Everyone at the Columbia Area Earth Day Festival will be invited to join in. At 2:25 p.m., prompted from the stage, we join hands and form human chains throughout Peace Park and all the adjacent streets to visibly demonstrate that we are united in our concern regarding the threat climate change presents.

With broad participation, this will be a memorable, participatory demonstration of concern. We are looking for more volunteers to help facilitate this. If you'd like to help, please let us know. We are also looking for battery-powered boom boxes which have working FM radios. If you have one of these you could lend us, please let us know.
