Join Solidarity Friday on April 22 5:00 at Pliny Park as part of Earthday celebration!
And May 6 during the first Gallery Walk
(We have a temporary change to the Solidarity Friday rallies in light of the emerging situation with COVID-19. It is important to be out on the streets and supporting each other and stand united in our shared humanity and struggle for justice. At this time, however, the coalition has decided to suspend these gatherings in light of the uptick in COVID-19. We are in conversation to figure out what comes next for our actions — which will continue in some form. Stay tuned here with 350 Brattleboro, as well as with Brattleboro Solidarity, Lost River Racial Justice, The Root Social Justice Center, and Tenants Union of Brattleboro. Thanks for everyone’s support and for all of you that join us at Pliny Park. We’ll see you soon, on screens and/or on the streets! ❤)

“The Reluctant Radical” follows activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change. Ken breaks the law as a last resort, to fulfill what he sees as his personal obligation to future generations. After twenty years leading environmental organizations, Ken became increasingly alarmed by both the scientific evidence of climate change and the repercussions for civilization as we know it. Ken pushed for a crisis level response from inside environmental organizations. Those efforts failed, and he now embraces direct action civil disobedience as the most effective political tool to deal with catastrophic circumstances.
At the conclusion of the showing, Ken Ward, the subject of the film will be available via zoom to answer questions and discuss his experience.

Vermont Climate Council Recommendations and a Just Transition
Vermont passed the global warming solutions act last year which asked all Vermonters to make significant changes towards a greener future. The first step was creating a non partisan climate council tasked to create a Climate Action Plan, which was just released in December. The Vermont Climate Action Plan is considering a number of pathways to address climate change. Communities most impacted by climate change and an energy transition must be prioritized.
Climate Council members Abbie Corse and Chris Campany will join Representative Emiliy Kornheiser and 350 Brattleboro talk about the council’s recommendations and the work ahead for a just transition.
