Together with in-laws and friends, including (unlike me) an actual scientist, we went on the march in San Francisco yesterday.
The most hand-written/individualized signs I've seen on any march. Quite a young crowd too, and I'd guess two-thirds female. We'll see if there's a long-term effect - I'm sure it depends on what people continue to do after the march.
UPDATE: here's something to do about it - get organized, and train to run for office:
Overview: Join us for a day of building political power for the climate movement by training bold, progressive climate activists to elected office at all levels. Potential candidates need to be identified, recruited, trained, and supported in order to achieve elected office—and once there, held accountable by the climate movement.
This training is for you if:
- You consider running for office yourself in the next 1-3 years
- You want to help a friend run for office
- You want to learn how a local electoral strategy could help your campaign
