Hello All:

Sorry to be sending this to you so late, but  I just received it myself - so I'm posting it on my blog.  Perhaps those of you in the DC, MD, VA area can be there to participate.

For those of you who think our youth are not concerned about what's going on, and not going on, this is a serious indication that you are in error. 

Stay Blessed &



Yes, I’ll be there.

I agree to the above action guidelines
I can participate in peaceful civil disobedience at this action (requires attending an action training on November 8th – more info here)
I would like to volunteer

By signing up you agree to join Fossil Fuel Divestment Student Network and 350.org email lists for updates about the action.
One year ahead of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, young people are taking to the streets of Washington, D.C. to demand justice on race, climate change, and immigration.
Right now our political system is failing us, so we’re taking these crises into our own hands. As the election ramps up, this is our chance to demand REAL leadership and make candidates’ agendas work for our movements, and for our future.
Our message: We need political leaders with plans that are in line with the imperatives of justice on race, climate change, and immigration. Keep fossil fuels in the ground. Protect the lives of black, brown, poor, and immigrant communities. Reinvest in healthy jobs, renewable energy, and an economy that works for all of us. Let’s get it done.
WHAT: Our Generation, Our Choice: Mobilization for justice on race, climate change, and immigration
WHEN: Monday, November 9th, 2015 at 8 AM
WHERE: Franklin Square, Washington, D.C.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Together, we can be a powerful chorus for change — but only if you’re there with us. Sign up above, then share this page with your friends.

Here’s why we’re committing civil disobedience: Millennials can no longer be silent about our broken system

Don’t be frightened, be inspired

This blog post was written by Vignesh Ramachandran, a student organizer with Divest Middlebury, on why he’s joining the Our Generation, Our Choice mobilization. Society teaches us that the individual is greater than everything. It’s why we take selfies and spend hours of our days curating our image on Facebook and Instagram.

Why I’m marching on November 9th

This blog post was written by Sophia Zaia, a student organizer with Swarthmore Mountain Justice, on why she’s joining the Our Generation, Our Choice mobilization.
