WEEK OF REBELLION: Critical Mass Day at State House Stand-Out

Wednesday, Sep 20

WEEK OF REBELLION Have you heard of XR Boston's popular Perpetual State House Stand-Out? This is a risk-free, no-arrest event!

Volunteers from a coalition of climate and community groups stand outside the State House every business day from 9-5, demanding that our leadership take immediate action to ban new fossil fuel infrastructure. In full public view, we process climate grief, sing, engage passerby in conversation.

On Critical Mass Day, we're inviting YOU to stand with us. This is a great event for climate-conscious folks who want to make a risk-free statement. We'll have our normal Stand-Out in the morning, then we'll gather for a lunchtime celebration at 12:30, after which we'll all write postcards and deliver them to Governor Healey in a giant group around 2 pm! We'll clean up and head home around 4:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to join for any portion of the day.

Feel free to bring your favorite anti-fossil-fuel signs and banners, and a dish to share at our lunchtime potluck! We encourage all Stand-Outers to bring their own water bottles and utensils.
