Actress and activist, Jane Fonda has instituted "Fire Drill Fridays" in Washington, D.C., inspired by Greta Thunberg and the youth climate strikes as well as Reverend Barber’s Moral Mondays.
From her website:
"I’ve moved to Washington, D.C. to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate. Every Friday through January, I will be leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency we are in. We can’t afford to wait."
Upon hearing of the idea, FAN's executive director, Patrick Carolan met up with Ms. Fonda and began discussing an opportunity for the faith community to be involved. We are very excited to announce Jane's support. FAN will co-host the Fire Drill Friday on Dec. 6th with a theme of migration and climate.
