P&P Live!: Jane Fonda – What Can I Do?: My Path from Climate Despair to Action - with Amber Valletta

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 9, 2020 - 8:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

"This is the last possible moment in history when changing course can mean saving lives and species on an unimaginable scale. It's too late for moderation."

In the fall of 2019, frustrated with the obvious inaction of politicians and inspired by Greta Thunberg, Naomi Klein, and student climate strikers, Jane Fonda moved to Washington, D.C. to lead weekly climate change demonstrations on Capitol Hill. On October 11, she launched Fire Drill Fridays, and has since led thousands of people in nonviolent civil disobedience, risking arrest to protest for action.

In What Can I Do?, Fonda weaves her deeply personal journey as an activist alongside conversations with and speeches by leading climate scientists and inspiring community organizers, and dives deep into the issues, such as water, migration, and human rights, to emphasize what is at stake. Most significantly, Fonda equips us all with the tools we need to join her in protest, so that everyone can work to combat the climate crisis.

Fonda will be in conversation with Amber Valletta, fashion icon, actress, and humanitarian.

*100% of the author's net proceeds from What Can I Do? will go to Greenpeace.
