On April 29, 2017:
11:00am: Gather in front of the Capitol Building in contingents that spell out values: justice, truth, democracy, faith and more.
Advanced Biofuels USA group will meet near the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art at 3rd Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue NW to talk with kids/parents/elders/students and educators lining up in that area (an easy walk from Judiciary Square or Union Station METRO, Red Line).
We will be holding signs, handing out postcards about advanced biofuels resources and answering questions about truly sustainable renewable fuels.
You can join the march wherever you wish. See map below for the organizers’ vision.
12:30pm: The march begins up Pennsylvania Avenue.
1:30pm: Marchers will surround the White House on all sides, and take powerful collective action to honor the lives at stake and make a loud sound demanding climate justice and good jobs.
3:00pm: Reconvene at the Washington Monument grounds to connect and share the stories that brought marchers to DC. Hear from the front line of the climate crisis and share solutions rooted in marchers’ own communities. There will be music and art from around the country that shows local demands and visions. Individual signs will be gathered into one collective message.
The Advanced Biofuels USA message goes beyond resistance to planned positive action to work to replace as much fossil-based fuel as possible in the US and around the world. We will demonstrate our mission of promoting understanding, development and use of advanced biofuels.
