On January 31st, the day after Trump’s first State of the Union, 350 Santa Barbara will be livestreaming an event from Washington D.C. for Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance. 350 Santa Barbara will watch the livestream, followed by their first public meeting of the new year to discuss campaigns to make our county get to fossil free, fast, in a just transition.

Speakers in the livestream include:

Senator Bernie Sanders
Varshini Prakash of the Sunrise Movement
Rev. Yearwood of the Hip Hop Caucus
Jessica Lorena Rangel of Houston Eyes of a Dreamer
Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org
Cherri Foytlin of L’eau Est La Vie Camp and Louisiana Rise
Adriana Voss-Andreae from 350PDX
Jacqueline Patterson from the NAACP
Tara Rodriguez Besosa with the Puerto Rico Resilience Fund
Julian Brave NoiseCat, 350.org US Policy Analyst

These powerful movement leaders will share stories on the urgency of the current political and climate crises, and light our path ahead: resist the Trump Administration’s ongoing attacks on our climate, build power towards the 2018 and 2020 elections, and secure the lasting change we need through local action.

Together, we will end the use of fossil fuels and usher in the fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy for all.
