Our friends and Climate Rally partners Moms Clean Air Force shared with us this great Polar Bear cartoon and their post on The Climate Forward Rally: 3 Ways to Mover Forward on Climate Without Leaving Home.

The 3 main ideas for supporting the Climate Forward Rally, without leaving home are taken directly from our partners at 350.org and are as follows:

1) Join the Thunderclap

We’re using a new online tool to amplify our voices on Twitter and Facebook. It’s called Thunderclap — because together, that’s how loud we can be. We’re hoping to get 10,000 people on board — click here to join: 350.org/thunderclap

When you sign up, Thunderclap will schedule a message to go out from you with a link to the Livestream during the rally — but only if we can get 10,000 people to join as well. Together we can (literally) reach millions of people with a message during the rally.

2) Submit Your Photos

There will be a giant screen at the rally, showing photos and messages of support from across the country — to get your message on the screen, take a photo showing your support for the action, or of a part of your community that you want protected from climate change, then email it to forwardonclimatephotos@350.org, with your location in the subject line. (Or, you can post your photo to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ForwardOnClimate).

We’ll pick out the best ones to put on the screen for tens of thousands of people to see, just outside the White House.

Share Your Sign

Finally, the web team put together this nifty sharable sign-maker that you can use to make a custom sign declaring your support for the action. They’re beautiful, and easy to share on your social networks. Check it out: sign.350.org

  • Welcome to Climate Mama

    welcome

    You are a mother, a father, a grandparent, an uncle, an aunt, a teacher or a child at heart. When you hear the Native American saying, “We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children”, it makes you stop for a moment and think. You love nature, travel, adventure and believing in a world that is special and unique. Climate change and global warming are words that alarm you, that often seem too big to get your arms around. You care about what’s happening to the world and notice small changes in your own life that seem to point in the direction of a threatened environment. But you wonder if these changes are real, and if they are you can’t imagine what you can do to help change what is happening.
