Want to do something about global warming?

Check out the Southeast Convergence for Climate Action that will be kicking off on August 5th in Louisa County, Virginia. 

The Southeast event is a series of global warming actions that are taking place across the United States this summer. Last year's actions were hugely successful and brought together thousands of people to voice their concern and desire for action to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

The convergence will culminate in a collective action to confront the climate crisis.”

So if you're in the area, drop by and check it out.
