No Rest for the Determined: Building and Keeping the Momentum

Coming on the heels of the largest climate change rally in history and the Sierra Club's first authorized act of civil disobedience, the Board of Directors spent some time debriefing these efforts. But no sooner did we cheer and celebrate the rally success than all attention and the vast majority of discussions shifted to focus on the opportunities and challenges ahead of us — expanding the climate focus, continuing to build power, and scaling up our campaigns, programs, and capacities. Highlights of the Board meeting last week (Feb. 21-23) included meeting and hearing about the work of our San Gorgonio Chapter leaders, and enjoying hikes in the Wildlands Conservancy Whitewater Preserve or Joshua Tree National Park.
 
Join me for an Open House call on Monday, March 4, from 4-5 pm PST / 7-8 pm EST, for a Climate Rally Debrief and a look forward to what's next.

Call-in number: 866-501-6174
Conference code: 455-0000-1892

I'll be joined by Sarah Hodgdon, Michael Bosse and others to discuss:

- What did the rally success look like and what did it take to deliver that?

- Who won the contest to bring the most people to the rally and how did they accomplish this?

- The Forward on Climate rally was the first big push in the Obama Climate and Clean Energy Campaign. What's next? How do we keep and build on the momentum?
 
Tens of thousands of people gathered in Washington, D.C., and around the country on a cold February day to call for and inspire bold and decisive leadership on climate. I look forward to talking with you about how to harness that hunger for our movement.

P.S. This is the second in a revival of the first-Monday-of-the-month President's Open House Call!
