Events happening during the current Month

Annie Leonard, Greenpeace … Save the date 1/9/2017

greenpeaceThat’s why on January 9 we’re taking part in a Day Against Denial to fight back against Trump’s nomination of Rex Tillerson and the rest of his proposed climate denial cabinet. Are you in? You can join people across the country to:

  • Hold rallies and have direct conversations with your Senator and their staff to pass along the message that you do not accept Trump’s dangerous nominations.
  • Call your Senator at 1-855-636-8150 to tell them that you oppose Rex Tillerson and Trump’s reckless climate denying cabinet picks.
  • Sign the petition telling your Senator to block Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson’s confirmation as Secretary of State.

I won’t pretend the fight ahead is going to be easy. We have to be fierce and tireless in our resistance. But thanks to you, our movement is bigger — and our action is bolder — than ever. We’re seeing unprecedented levels of grassroots participation and volunteer-led work throughout the country. Our historic progress last year should remind us all what is possible when we stand together, united and determined, no matter what. Seeing your commitment and courage gives me the confidence to say that together, our movement can defeat Trump’s agenda of hate, greed, and corruption. He can’t, and won’t, trump us. Thank you for being a part of this community.

For a green and peaceful future,

Annie Leonard

P.S. We have the power to protect our rights, our people and communities, and the future of the planet. We just have to keep rising up and speaking out — and never backing down. It’s not too late to join us with your critical support. Please consider making a membership donation to Greenpeace in the New Year to help us fight back.

Leonardo DiCaprio and director Fisher Stevens will release Before the Flood

October 30, 2016

You’re not going to want to miss this.

You’re not going to want to miss this.

On October 30th, Leonardo DiCaprio and director Fisher Stevens will release Before the Flood, perhaps the most important documentary on climate change in a generation.

I had the opportunity to sit with DiCaprio during the COP21 climate summit in Paris late last year to explain the urgent connections between climate change and the global deforestation crisis. Specifically, we discussed RAN’s work to protect the amazing Leuser Ecosystem in Indonesia — spurring DiCaprio and his team to visit the Leuser and bring back some amazing and harrowing footage.

You can see part of my conversation with DiCaprio in the film. Before the Flood airs globally October 30th on the National Geographic Channel in 171 countries in 45 languages. (The film will eventually be available free online for all to see — stay tuned for the details!)

So please save the date and spread the word. Together we can maximize the impact of this hard hitting activist cinema.

Great news about #giveNMAAHC — September 13, 2016


I’ve got great news for you.  A generous sponsor has stepped up to make our Giving Day an incredible success! Hyundai has provided $50,000 to match gifts we receive by motivated supporters between now and our giving day to get the day off on the right foot!

As you may know, this historic museum is scheduled to open its doors on September 24th allowing visitors from around the world to experience history through the eyes of African Americans.

By getting involved in NMAAHC Giving Day, you can help ensure that we continue to share the African American experience with the world for years to come.  And your donation will help build a museum that transcends cultural, racial, socio-economic boundaries.

So get a jump on the excitement by donating today. Give our fundraising efforts a boost with an early gift and watch your donation go TWICE as far thanks to Hyundai to ensure that our museum enjoys success beyond its opening day.

Then take the next step to becoming a Giving Day Champion allowing you to share #giveNMAAHC with your social media, welcoming others to join in supporting this long-awaited museum to Washington D.C.

Opening Day is just a few weeks away.  Now is the time to get involved, DOUBLE your impact, and help us make history by delivering compelling stories and thought-provoking exhibits that tell the African-American experience for years to come.

Thank you in advance for your support.

AUGUST 16–18



This summer, you have a chance to do just that by becoming a Climate Reality Leader at our training in Houston, Texas on August 16–18. And whether or not you call Texas home, we hope you’ll join us.

Why Texas?

As average temperatures have increased over the past five decades thanks to rising greenhouse gas emissions, more intense floods, droughts, and heat waves are becoming a regular fact of life for more and more parts of the world. And that’s especially true in the Lone Star State.


But the good news is Texas hasn’t just been on the receiving end of climate change – it’s also become a national leader in clean energy solutions, thanks to an abundance of wind energy. Between its wide open spaces and the flatlands of the Great Plains, Texas is perfectly situated for steady, sustained winds ideal for energy production.

We’re heading to Houston to explore this success story in the making and hear how regular Texans are taking practical steps to stop the climate change devastating their state – and helping transform its economy along the way. It’s an important story with important lessons about the future of our planet for all of us, no matter where we live.

At this three-day event, you’ll learn more about the clean energy revolution underway in Texas. You’ll also learn from former US Vice President Al Gore how to talk to people everywhere about the urgent crisis we face. You’ll learn the key science behind climate change and the latest on the solutions we have today. And you’ll work with experts in fields like communications, climate science, and grassroots organizing to learn how to inspire audiences to take action on the greatest challenge of our time.

Ready to get started? Apply now to join us at our next Climate Reality Leadership Corpstraining in Houston and help us build the movement that will stop climate change and create a healthy future for our planet.
