Fed up with all the hot air around climate change? Then roll up your sleeves and get down and dirty Oakland-style, with hundreds of your friends and neighbors this October 10 at Laney College!

We'll revitalize Laney College's community garden, offer skills-building workshops, pass the mic to dynamic speakers, and bring together local leaders for climate justice. Help support Oakland's climate action plan by building community access to healthy, affordable food! We'll also kick off a statewide Clean Energy Tour featuring some of Oakland's top hip hop talent, while educating folks about the threat to our communities from Prop 23.

Sponsored by the Oakland Climate Action Coalition, Bay Localize, Ella Baker Center, and CommuniTree, this will be an anchor event among dozens of gatherings happening around the Bay Area as part of 350.org's "Global Work Party" on 10.10.10. Get involved with local climate solutions!
