As you and fellow Americans prepare for Thanksgiving, we invite you to participate in another important meal. Introducing Earth To Dinner, a series of dinners dedicated to keep climate change on the table.
Last year on December 12, 195 world leaders came together to advance the historic Paris Climate Agreement. The Paris Agreement went into force earlier this month on November 4th, however, the election of Donald Trump has put this agreement into question.
Cities have spoken. Yesterday, 35 American Mayors from red states and blue states wrote an open letter to President-elect Trump asking for partnership to address climate change.
Young people have spoken. 21 young plaintiffs have been given the right to sue our government and the fossil fuel industry over climate change.
Business has spoken. Last week, over 300 leading companies including Starbucks, Levi’s, Nike, REI, Ben & Jerry’s, General Mills, and over 300 companies wrote an open letter to President-elect Trump to “re-affirm our deep commitment to addressing climate change through the implementation of the historic Paris Agreement.”
Today, you can take the first step in demanding the U.S. upholds its end of the deal by joining the People’s Climate Agreement. Sign up here to learn more about #EarthToDinner and to host a dinner starting December 12th, and together we can keep climate action on the table
We’ve teamed up with Michael Hebb, creator of Death Over Dinner, to help designEarth To Dinner, a global project inviting you to host your community to have a meaningful dialogue about addressing climate change.
