I Will #ActOnClimate Philadelphia Rally

On Friday, August 16, join local and national leaders to answer President Obama's call to act on climate change. Last year was the hottest on record — the worst drought in generations covered more than half the country; record wildfires swept across western states; and Super Storm Sandy devastated communities in the east. The costs of inaction on climate change are increasing. That's why we need as many people as possible to stand with the president to protect our air, our environment, and our future.

WHEN: Friday, August 16, 2013 at 11 a.m.
WHERE: The People's Plaza, Independence Mall, 5th and Market Streets, Philadelphia PA
Kenyatta Johnson, Philadelphia City Councilman
State Rep. Greg Vitali
State Rep. Jordan Harris
Katherine Gajewski, City of Philadelphia's Director of Sustainability
John Johnson, President, Transport Workers Union Local #234
Ryan Boyer, Business Manager, Laborers' District Council Philadelphia

Summer Location at Standard Tap, NoLibs!

We've finally selected a space at the Standard Tap, thanks to their stellar management staff! Thanks to Jacqueline, their General Manager, the area immediately to the left of the outside door on the 2nd floor deck (triangular nook, sheltered by the roof overhang) is where Green Drinks Delaware Valley will meet until the late fall (or until it starts snowing). Look for signs on the first floor and follow us up and outside; you'll see Mike Di Tizio, Chapter Head, holding down the area and awaiting members. See you there!
