EFNC Joins “Day of Denial” Protests Climate Change Deniers


On January 9, 2107, a bitter cold day in Philadelphia, members of Eastwick Friends & Neighbors Coalition (EFNC) joined the national “Day of Denial” rally to protest climate change deniers. EFNC marched in Philadelphia with a coalition of environmental and social justice groups, including 350 Philadelphia, Food & Water WatchGreen Justice Philly, and others.

Our “Day of Denial” action was part of a national effort to focus attention and raise concerns about proposed federal cabinet members who deny climate change. Such denial would have devastating impacts on the environment, economy, and public health and safety. EFNC was with ~300 people who marched, held signs, and spoke about the importance of climate change recognition. Our own Ramona Rousseau-Reid added her grace, strength, and wise words to the podium of speakers!

The rally started at Senator Bob Casey’s office in center city Philadelphia, and culminated at Senator Pat Toomey’s office a few blocks away. Press covered the peaceful protest, and a few blocks around city hall were closed for a brief period of time.
