  • It's time for bold action to save our planet and protect our health and wellbeing. 

  • Burning fossil fuel is immoral and nonessential.

  • Approximately 10% of our electric bill goes toward subsidizing massive fossil fuel corporations.

  • Demanding change from our legislators and street protests have not given us the change we need, so IT'S TIME TO STRIKE!

See this LINK to start participating as a supporter or to engage in the strike.

The Einstein Institution was founded by Gene Sharp, a pioneering scholar in the theory, history, and practices of nonviolent action. His work has been used to not only launch an entire academic area of scholarship; it has also been used by on-the-ground activists to successfully overthrow some of the most ruthless dictators in the world, corporate corruption, and other forms of national and local structures of oppression.

Access to many of his works can be obtained free by visiting their library of resources HERE.
