Fundraiser for environmental nonprofit Earthjustice on Fri. Apr. 28 at the Midlands; live music, make signs for the Climate March, volunteers needed too.


It's a busy month for marches in town: there was recently the Tax March demanding Donald Trump release his taxes, this Saturday is the March for Science, and on the Saturday after it's the People's Climate March.

The environmental law nonprofit Earthjustice is holding a pre-Climate March event at the Midlands beer garden on Friday, with live music, sign-making, raffles from local businesses and a lot more. Come check it out, or if you'd like, help volunteer! 

The event is called the HotHotHot Fundraiser for Climate Action, and if you're interested in volunteering, contact Rachel at HotHotHotDC@gmail.com. They need help recruiting or donating raffle and silent auction items, with event set-up, tabling and clean-up.

Here's more about the event, which sounds pretty rad.

Come join your neighbors and fellow Earth lovers for local brews, live music, rally sign-making for the next day's Climate Change March, and tons of great raffle items from local businesses and artisans! No cover charge, but bring your ID---This is a 21+ only event. And skip the line by registering in advance online hothothotdc.eventbrite.com.

WHAT IS EARTHJUSTICE?
Earthjustice is a nonprofit environmental law organization that uses the power of the law to fight for the earth and its inhabitants. They represent a diverse array of clients and coalition partners, from grassroots and community groups to large national organizations. Donations to Earthjustice allow them to represent their clients free of charge, so they can choose cases strategically rather than based on the client's ability to pay. Earthjustice pursues three key goals: protecting our earth's natural spaces and wildlife; fighting for healthy communities where children can breathe clean air, no matter where they live; and strengthening the rise of clean energy. If you can't make the event, be sure to stop by their website to make a donation.
