Reposting an announcement by Pittsburgh 350, which is working for meaningful climate change action in our region! (That’s also the org in my website’s header photo!)

Hi to all
On Saturday the climate action movement will hold hundreds of events around the world.  These events will recognize the positive steps made at the Paris conference, but will emphasize the fact that implementation of those steps will require grassroots monitoring and action.
As you know, here in Pittsburgh there will be a rally and march:

“The Building Blocks for Climate Change Action”
Assemble at 9:45 am and finish at 11:00 am, Saturday, December 12

Start rally at 10 am at steps to Cathedral of Learning
near Stephen Foster Memorial on Forbes.

To demonstrate the depth of support for strong local action on climate change, we are inviting everyone to join in the march, and to bring along their own personal or group ‘building block’ with their name on it.  At the end of the march through Oakland we will use all the ‘building blocks’ to erect a pyramid representing our commitment to local climate action.

There will be a “block-building” party:
7-9 pm on Friday, December 11
Thomas Merton Center,
519 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15224.

Sponsors of this event include the Clean Air Council, Environmental Justice Committee (TMC), PennEnvironment, Pittsburgh350, and the Sierra Club.

NOTE:  After the march join us at 11:30 am at the First Unitarian Church, Ellsworth and Morewood, for a panel discussion on how climate change is impacting Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania.
