The SHOUT Heard ‘Round the World: Revere Our Climate

The SHOUT Heard ‘Round the World: Revere Our Climate
An Invitation to Participate in a Climate Action Event on Sunday, April 19th, 2015

The SHOUT Heard ‘Round the World will bring together diverse organizations to collectively “sound the alarm” for the urgent need to address climate change. Our goal is to gather civic, environmental, faith-based and grassroots groups to motivate more people to become activists in reducing energy use, changing legislation and policies, supporting conservation efforts and educating others. We would very much like to have you participate.

On Sunday, April 19th, a bike rider will start in Charlestown at 10:00 a.m. and stop at host churches in towns along the route Paul Revere rode 240 years ago. Adult and youth bike riders are encouraged to join the lead rider and continue on to Concord. Walkers are invited to follow the route from any point and we will provide suggested starting times from several locations.

Participating organizations are encouraged to create their own activities at the host churches to deliver their message about climate change and encourage people to join their efforts. Tables will be be provided at First Parish in Concord for any organization that wishes to educate people and distribute materials.

There will be a gathering at First Parish from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Snacks and drinking water will be provided and participants are welcome to bring a lunch. At 1:30 p.m. we will walk as a group to Minute Man National Park for a 2:00 p.m. rally featuring speakers and music. Overlooking the North Bridge, we will honor the original American patriots by coming together in the battle against climate change.
