Elders  Climate  Action Went to  Washington  D.C.

Most of us have made it home from our travels, had a moment to catch our breaths, and reflect on the moments we shared.

We want to share some of those memorable moments with all of you, and hope that you will join us next time. 

This is what happens when Elders Take Action! 

For the grandchildren and all life,

Geri Freedman
Elders Climate Action Co-Chair

One of our Favorite Moments:

A Day of Learning & Inspiration:
 Elders Climate Action Day
April 27, 2017

American University Washington College of Law, Washington D.C.

There are too many highlights of Elders Climate Action Day to list, so we thought we'd share some photographs from the day.  As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words....

You can read more about Elders Climate Action Day in a wonderful article by Beth Baker"Environmental Activism Attracts Boomers Seeking an Impact: Concerned for future generations, they are working to stop climate change" 

Delivering our Message to the Capitol: Highlights From Friday's Congressional Visits
Friday April 28, 2017

Thank you to all of the Elders who visited all 535 congressional offices, delivering our climate pledge. It  wouldn't  have happened without your dedication and hard work!

Elders Take Action at the 
People's Climate March
Saturday, April 29, 2017

Despite the record breaking heat, a delegation of Elders from Elders Climate Action took to the streets in Washington D.C. to encourage immediate action on climate change.  Our delegation of elders, from across the country, marched with an estimated 250,000 people to protect our grandchildren, future generations and all life. 

If there is one thing we know from our collective wisdom, it's that climate change is REAL and there is no time to waste! 

The Climate Can't Wait.
