We are dancing for climate action! Encourage your candidates and leaders to endorse the CO People’s Platform this winter.
On February 24 we will gather across Colorado in action to pressure local candidates and leaders to endorse bold climate policy and to #MakeColoradoSnowAgain. Colorado is at record low snowpacks, 10-20% in some regions of the state. Although studies show that 70% of Coloradans believe climate change is real, only 40% believe they will ever be impacted.
It’s time to change that Narrative, we need #ClimateActionNow in all levels of our government. We’re bringing together a statewide action to dance for the climate and make Colorado snow again! What is The Goal? Highlight the local impacts of climate change and encourage local elected officials, candidates and organizations to sign onto the Colorado People’s Climate Justice Platform.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Many cultures around the world have historically danced for snow, rain, in need or in celebration. Dance is part of our human experience and expression across cultures. We encourage everyone to be very respectful of others’ cultural traditions and not attempt to imitate other cultural dances outside of your own. If your culture already has a snow dance – great, use it! If not, please be creative and choreograph your own!
The purpose of this event is to bring people together through movement, art and music to highlight the local impacts of climate change and encourage our leaders and candidates to push for bold climate policy.
Host an event in your community or get together in your backyard, on the slopes or in your office with your neighbors, friends and family and show off your best moves in the name of climate action! Please use this action network page to publish your event if you would like to invite others. Everyone will be encouraged to post their videos or a live stream of your climate action dance on Social Media. Tag your local candidates or elected officials in your post and ask them to endorse the People’s Climate Justice Platform with the hashtag #MakeColoradoSnow #ClimateActionNow #COPeoplesPlatform
2018 is a year for action! Our goal is to help you use this event as a springboard for powerful local campaigning and gaining endorsements and signatures for the Colorado Peoples Climate Justice Platform. Check out the full toolkit here!
