Here is an update about Global Exchange's work:
Global Exchange is taking on great work to address climate change in a way that protects the rights of nature and the rights of the Earth’s communities over those of corporations by:
- Helping communities in California pass rights-based ordinances against the harmful practice of fracking
- Mobilizing against the Keystone XL pipeline
- Informing the public and trying to block the secretly-negotiated Trans-Pacific Partnership
- Standing in solidarity with indigenous communities in the tar-sands region of northern Alberta at the Healing Walk
- Continuing to support producers through our Fair Trade stores.
In the next few months, we will continue these efforts while further investigating and exposing the impact of corporate lobbying for dirty energy on lawmakers’ attempts to further critical climate policy issues.
Our Happy Hour Fundraiser proceeds will contribute to Global Exchange’s efforts to continue to tackle climate change and BEAT THE HEAT!
So please, join us for an evening full of fun and help us tackle these critical issues that will affect us all!
