The public is invited and encouraged to join millions of people across Oregon, the U.S., and the world in the “People’s Climate Mobilization,” an event being held in recognition of the reality and effects of climate change and the work that needs to be done to justly and effectively respond to the climate crisis. The event will take place worldwide on Saturday, April 29.
Tillamook’s sister event will occur that day (Saturday, April 29) beginning at 11:00am at the Tillamook Public Library where a Climate Fair will be held in the Hatfield Room. From 11:00am until 3:00pm, local organizations will speak about their efforts and share information about what we can do as individuals and collectively to slow climate change. At 1:00pm, all are invited to participate in an organized, peaceful People’s Climate March, which will begin at Elmore Park (Front and Main in Tillamook). The march will proceed from there along a specific, planned route in Tillamook. Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite, creative climate-related signs and dress for wet weather. At the conclusion of the march (around 2:00pm), the Climate Fair will wrap up at the library where refreshments will be served.
This is an opportunity to learn about what is going on locally in terms of climate crisis action, to network with others who share a deep concern about climate crisis issues, and, most importantly, to make your voice heard and be counted as a citizen concerned about our families, communities, and planet Earth. As the event’s slogan declares, “To change everything, we need everyone.”
