MoCo Rise for Climate seeks to educate, inspire, and motivate residents of Montgomery County to push our elected leaders and our whole community to act boldly to fight climate change. Hear from inspiring speakers, enjoy great music, and learn how you can connect to our cosponsoring organizations. As the federal government fails to act, local leaders must step up and lead. Join us to learn and to demand action now!

Speakers include:

Rep. Jamie Raskin
Montgomery Councilmember Marc Elrich
Climate scientist and local activist Danielle Meitiv
Goldman Environmental Prize winner Destiny Watford
