Last week, the IPCC put out another startling report. It makes clear that we're not doing nearly enough to fight climate change.
Yet our top legislative priority here in Maryland, the Climate Solutions Now Act, passed out of committee Friday with amendments that undermine the urgency and boldness we need. Annapolis leaders appear ready to delay critical building-decarbonization actions.
Maryland needs to Electrify NOW. On Monday, March 14, we’ll rally in Annapolis with one week left before a key legislative deadline. Legislators (typically) go into session at 8 PM on Monday, so we’ll be catching them on their way to the floor. This is an opportunity to make an impression on them while we still have a chance!
This is an evening rally so be ready to use your phone flashlight or other hand-held lights to bring attention to our gathering. Also, though COVID levels are low and many localities are rescinding mask mandates, out of an abundance of caution we still ask that you wear a mask at this event.
Who: You and climate activists from across the state
What: A rally to push back against delays on state climate action
When: Monday, March 14 at 7:00 PM
Where: Lawyer’s Mall, Annapolis (Bladen Street and College Avenue)
Why: The IPCC has made it clear that we have no more time to delay climate action. Our legislators need to hear the alarm from us, the people!
