I hope that you will join me, and many others, who will gather in
Washington, DC, on September 9 & 10, 2015 – for
Grandparents Climate Action Days –
to demand that our nation’s leaders strengthen our energy policies in order to provide a sustainable and thriving environment and climate for our future.
The scientists all agree -- climate change is a reality and is accelerating.
Now is the moment to act on behalf of our planet and for our grandchildren.
As a member of Elders Climate Action (ECA) I believe that by lobbying our representatives and enacting strong legislation we can help to restore our climate for a livable future. ECA is partnering with Citizens’ Climate Lobby for this effort, and our platform includes Carbon Fee and Dividend legislation and EPA’s Clean Power Plan.
On Thursday, September 10th we will meet with members of Congress to encourage their support for this platform.
On Wednesday, September 9th, we will come together for a day of preparation, education, networking, and “basic training” for lobbying.
- Dr. James Hansen, world renowned climatologist
- Lynne Twist -“Being an Elder Activist” speaker
- Training and education about advocacy and climate change
- Flash mob dance – come find out where!
- Meeting other elders and grandparents; sharing our hearts & wisdom
The wisdom of Elders has been respected throughout generations and cultures -- traditionally they are considered the guardians of future generations. Now is the time for us to step up and into this important role.
ELDERS CLIMATE ACTION is a national movement of elders dedicated to using the power of our caring, wisdom and numbers to push for new energy policies that will reduce greenhouse gases in our atmosphere to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet.
I hope that you will join me in Washington, or, if you cannot attend, it is possible to participate in other ways.

With great hope that together we can bring forth the future that we desire for our children and for all life, Lynne
