Southeast Convergence for Climate Action
WHEN: August 5—August 11,
WHERE: Central VA -- Sophia House in Louisa County Virginia
This summer, join people of all ages and backgrounds for the second annual Southeast Convergence for Climate Action. We are excited to continue the struggle for climate justice in the southeast with an engaging week of workshops, strategizing, and direct action! This year's convergence will be hosted in Virginia where communities are fighting uranium mining, nuclear power, mountaintop removal coal mining, and new (as well as old) coal plants. We will unite to fight the coal industry's stranglehold on our region while rejecting the deadly nuke industry's attempt to position itself as the solution to the climate crisis.
The convergence is a place to strengthen our movement, network with new allies, and take action against dirty energy while working to build a sustainable world.
Workshops will include: community organizing, direct action 101, debunking false solutions to climate change, blockades, sustainable living systems, media, disaster response, fighting nukes and coal, and much more. The convergence will culminate in an empowering action to show that the southeast is serious about tackling climate change.For more information visit www.climateconvergence.org or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
