UPDATE 2013.02.07 -- Revised WBPF Gathering Location

On Feb 17, WBPF members are encouraged to gather together with other interfaith groups at this event. 

The Interfaith Moral Action on Climate has endorsed this event and we hope you will participate and also help spread the word very broadly. People of faith have a great deal to offer to those who are deeply concerned about the urgent climate crisis. All of our faith traditions emphasize the importance of care for creation and stewardship of the earth and all of its life forms.

What:   The largest climate rally in history of the USA.


When:   February 17, 2013, 11:30 am - 4:00 pm 
            Please arrive by 11:30 am for the Faith-based speakers
              So we can help set a peaceful and compassionate tone 
              for this large multi-organizational event

Where: REVISED -- The multi-faith contingent will gather outside the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden on the National Mall. The Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden is located on the National Mall between 7th and 9th Street SW. We will meet on the north side/Mall side of the sculpture garden on the gravel pathway.  

Look for a WBPF sign. We'll be with Tim Kumfer, of the Festival Center, and Rose Berger, of Sojourners, who will be carrying a large "dove" to help us find them in the crowd.

The closest Metro station is L'Enfant Plaza (green, yellow, orange, or blue lines).
            
Sign-up not required.

After the interfaith talks, we'll join the larger group for the rally and walk at noon.  WBPF members will be free to leave when they need to.
What to bring: They ask us to bring congregational banners and wear congregational T-shirts, to show the variety of faiths represented, so bring any Buddhist banners or signs, or wear t-shirts.  They aren't necessary if you don't have anything.
More Details: are available on the WBPF Blog.

The Twitter hashtag is#ForwardOnClimate & here is more info from the Sierra Club & this 350.org video.

Currently available agenda details for the main event which begins at Noon: 
"We'll join together to hear the powerful words from our speakers, then assemble on Constitution Avenue, march up 17th Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, then over to 15th Street, where we're going to form a giant human pipeline representing Keystone XL and the dirty energy system of the past. We'll then transform the giant dirty pipeline into a symbol of the renewable energy economy of the future. Tens of thousands strong, we'll form the largest symbol of hope for a safe climate future that this country has ever seen. After that we'll return to the monument to get fired up for how we keep moving the forward towards action on climate change with some music (with artists being confirmed as you read this)."
