Step It Up Saturday

Step It Up 2007 will take place this Saturday, November 3rd, 2007 at locations throughout the city. The National Day of Climate Action is led by Bill McKibben, leading environmentalist and one of the leading forces behind Step It Up. On November 3rd politicians will join citizens in taking on the greatest challenge of our time. Citizens gather at places across the country named after historic leaders to demand that our representatives address three key priorities to stop global warming. Step It Up 2007 is a campaign organized by people all around the country, calling for leadership on global warming. This year Step It Up joined forces with the bold new 1 Sky initiative, a project that includes the comprehensive science-based priorities necessary to overcome the crisis we face and realize the immense opportunities of our time:
