Introduction to Extinction Rebellion Talk and Meeting
Wednesday 22nd May, 7pm,
Town Hall, Hebden Bridge
Local Extinction Rebellion organisers would like to welcome more people to the Rebellion and support them to make sense of, and take action on, the climate crisis and mass extinction.
The meeting is open to all – current members and new members alike. The event will involve an Introduction to Extinction Rebellion Talk (climate science & XR background) with question and answer session and space to plan action.
We hope to engage with new people from throughout the Calderdale area to work together to grow into autonomous and diverse groups all over the valley, working to take action on the climate and ecological crisis.
Calderdale Council have declared a Climate Emergency. Extinction Rebellion say, "Come along to make it count for you and your community. Climate justice starts here."
