On November 17 & 18, supporters of 350.org will gather in Boston for a New England Convergence to address the region’s reliance on fossil fuels and the methods we can utilize to expose and end their use, including building campaigns, shutting down fossil fuel infrastructure, political accountability, direct action, and policy tools such as fee and dividend carbon pricing. We will work together to plan regional mass actions against fossil fuels on January 19, 2013, the Saturday before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
SATURDAY NOV. 17 will feature a full day of panels, workshops, and fun designed to foster cross-pollination of ideas and brainstorming as we work together to better utilize our limited resources. That includes:
- Activists from the front lines presenting their stories.
- Sessions focusing on tar sands, coal, gas, and fee and dividend carbon pricing.
- Small group workshops to build actionable campaigns.
- An evening dance party and time for socializing.
SUNDAY NOV. 18, in the morning, a smaller group of organizers will begin planning direct actions in their home regions or states. We encourage you to participate in this portion of the Convergence if you are prepared to commit your time and talents to help coordinate these actions.
