10:30-11:30: rally with speakers from a variety of organizations speaking about how climate change impacts them in their lives and work
11:30-12:30: march around downtown Port Angeles, ending at the observation deck at the end of City Pier for photographs
12:30-1: semi-silent vigil to close the activity (or more family time at the beach)
The “dots” are the various issues that impact and are impacted by climate change. We are seeking broad involvement by people involved in a myriad of social issues, because climate change will affect us all. The visuals will center around a large painting of Earth which will be visually connected by ribbons to smaller “dots” with phrases suggesting the surrounding issues. These images will be carried in a long line during the march and then displayed in sunburst fashion, with Earth at the center, for a photograph with marchers at the City Pier observation deck.
Kids can play with the ribbons (made from kite material) and enjoy the beach before and after the march.
