Author Ed Fallon Talks About The Great March for Climate Action

The Suncoast Climate Justice Coalition is hosting a talk by Ed Fallon. Ed is a former Iowa legislator, climate activist and host of the progressive radio program, “The Fallon Forum”.

Ed will be discussing his book Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim which chronicles his journey across the U.S. in 2014 called the Great March for Climate Action. On the 3,100-mile, 8-month walk from Los Angeles to Washington, DC, marchers became a mobile village, weathering harsh conditions, sharing joys and sorrows, meeting people already affected by climate change, and intensifying their commitment to the cause as they sounded the alarm about our warming world.

In addition to sharing the story of the March, Ed discusses the importance of developing local strategies for resilience in the face of mounting climate disasters. The SCJC will also discuss how you can help forward the work being done right here in Sarasota to address the climate crisis and move our community to 100% Clean Renewable energy for all.
