Fire Drill Fridays!
Inspired by urgent action needed to address climate change, Jane Fonda is upending her life and spending 4 months in Washington D.C. this fall. Every Friday she's there will be "Fire Drill Friday" to bring urgent attention to important intersectional analysis around Climate Change. Each week will feature a different theme.
Funding endless war is an existential threat to human life and one of the leading causes of climate change, which is why it's urgent that we come together in Washington D.C. and make the connection between U.S. militarism and climate change. On Friday, November 8th, Fire Drill Fridays will focus on War and Military.

Time's UP: Remove Trump!
Individuals and groups are showing up in D.C. for a week of actions beginning on November 2-11th to say Remove Trump!
From their website:
"Join us: We are rising up to call for Trump's removal from office.
Trump's crimes against our Constitution, our democracy, our humanity, and our future make him utterly unfit to serve as president.
Impeachment is just the first step.
Trump must be removed from office.
And we the people need to lead the way in calling for his removal.
This is a people's uprising and mass collaboration. No one owns this, no one person or group is calling the shots. We are inviting all who share our aim to join in shaping and building this effort."
The largest action will be on Friday, November 8th. Follow their Facebook for more updates!
