19] – Rally for a 100% Renewable Energy Maryland in Federal Hill Park, 300 Warren Ave., Baltimore 21230 on Thurs., Aug. 24 at noon. Meet at the flagpole, located at the northern end of the park by Key Highway. Maryland is at a tipping point that could lead to climate chaos and needs an ambitious plan to protect Maryland from the dire impacts of global warming and sea level rise. Climate change will have devastating effects on places like the Chesapeake Bay, the Eastern Shore, and the numerous coastal cities and towns. We must do everything within our power to stop our reliance on fossil fuels and ensure a just transition to 100% clean, renewable energy as soon as possible. Because of the federal administration’s opposition to even acknowledging climate change, it is up to local and state governments to lead in transitioning to 100% clean, renewable energy. On the heels of a fracking ban, Maryland has an opportunity to once again stand up for communities against the fossil fuel industry. Join a rally and press conference announcing next steps to immediately begin moving Maryland to 100% clean, renewable energy. Contact Rianna with questions - email@example.com or 410-394-7652.
