Inaugurate yourself. Get involved with Rising Tide Bay Area. January 20th is a day to begin working towards community, autonomy and sustainable living.

While the Beltway elite and the fossil fuel empire are celebrating more business as usual in the corridors of power, we'll be discussing ways to uproot the true causes of climate change and build a better world.

On Jan. 20th, Rising Tide Bay Area is having a general meeting and orientation for interested people. We'll show some short videos of recent climate actions and the Tennessee coal disaster and have a discussion about upcoming events in washington D.C., San Francisco and Copenhagen.

Plug in to find out ways to get more involved in radical climate organizing in the Bay.

About Rising Tide
Rising Tide is an international network born out of the conviction that corporate-friendly and state-sponsored “solutions” to climate change will not save us.

Rising Tide is a grassroots network of groups and individuals who take direct action to confront the roots causes of climate change and promote local, community-based solutions to the climate crisis.

Rising Tide North America’s strategy is based on a no-compromise approach of stopping the extraction of more fossil fuels and preventing the construction of new fossil fuel infrastructure. We must phase out our current fossil fuel use and make a just transition to sustainable ways of living.

Rising Tide builds strong links with those who are already being affected by climate change, and to ally ourselves with environmental justice groups fighting pollution from refineries, power plants and coal processing facilities.
