March Forth To Earth Day! March 4 – April 22, 2022 – Actions in Numerous Cities Across Wisconsin (Resource Material)

Eight consecutive weeks of outdoor-in-person & virtual climate actions across Wisconsin – 

A call for bold and decisive actions, including but not limited to Stopping Line 5

Please join the growing coalition of groups that are cosponsoring this project. Your public endorsement and help with promoting this project will help us to create dozens of actions all over Wisconsin. (Check out the other endorsers and cosponsors by clicking here.)

These Friday actions can be as simple as a quiet public assembly or as creative and complicated as any community has capacity and interest for. We have ideas and resources to help you in either direction. Our goal is to have dozens of Friday climate actions across Wisconsin and to link them via Zoom events and social media. The Zoom events will happen between noon and 1:00 PM and between 5:00 and 6:00 PM on each of the Fridays. (Mar. 4th – Apr. 22)

There are already 16 Wisconsin Communities that are committed to doing this project!

Dear Supporters of Treaty Rights and Climate Justice in Wisconsin,

Please mark your calendars and join us in promoting and/or creating this statewide climate justice project: March Forth to Earth Day!(March 4 – April 22)

Marches & climate actions will begin all over Wisconsin on March 4th, and will continue each Friday through Earth Day, April 22nd (8 consecutive Fridays). We are sounding the alarm and demanding swift and powerful action for climate justice – including rejecting LN 5!

Activists in the Milwaukee and Appleton areas, who have been leading Friday climate actions for years, will soon be joined by activists in Fond du Lac, Eau Claire, Green Bay, Kenosha, La Crosse, Madison, Manitowoc, Racine, Shawano, Stevens Point, Shell Lake, Viroqua, Wausau, and many other Wisconsin Communities. Dozens will join this project before it ends on Earth Day.

*** These Friday actions will be both outdoors and safely-distanced and will be connected to simultaneous statewide virtual actions accessible by Zoom, and Facebook, at both noon and 5:00pm! You can watch these at https://www.facebook.com/marchforthtoearthdayproject.
