Join the Cool Foods Campaign at the Forward on Climate Rally

The largest climate rally EVER in the U.S. is taking place on Sunday, February 17th in Washington, DC. Thousands of people are mobilizing for the rally, which is organized by 350.org, the Sierra Club, and the Hip Hop Caucus; the Center for Food Safety’s Cool Foods Campaign is one of dozens of organizations across the U.S. that has signed on to join the march.

Climate change manifests as extreme weather.  It isn’t some technical mystery, but rather the scary stuff we’ve witnessed in our communities in recent years: wildfires fueled by epic drought, hurricanes fueled by warming waters, and rains that turn into violent floods. We are already witnessing the climate becoming more erratic and less predictable and we need to do everything we can, as soon as we can, to ensure that it doesn’t spiral completely out of control.

The Cool Foods Campaign knows that one third of climate-changing gases are caused by the food system, so a large part of the climate solution lies in voting with our dollars to support climate-friendly agriculture that will help our kids, instead of making the problem worse by relying on climate-changing fossil fuels. And while voting with our forks is vitally important, it isn’t enough by itself. That's why the Cool Foods Campaign is joining the Forward on Climate rally--and we need you to join, too!

Sign up below to join us at the Forward on Climate rally at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. at noon on Sunday, February 17.

We'll be meeting between 11:30 & 11:45 @ the Smithsonian Metro stop. Mall exit (on the Mall!) near 12th & Jefferson. We'll have red signs! Bring some water and snacks as it will be a long day. We'd also recommend you buy a round-trip ticket if you're taking the Metro to avoid long lines after the rally.
