Are you sick of the climate silence? Are you sick of the non-stop SuperPAC ads from the fossil fuel industry? Yeah, we are too.
But when we saw this video from Florida A&M student Duresny Nemorin and 200 other students in Florida, we had a crazy idea — what if we put up our own ad, with youth voices, asking the critical question Duresny frames so perfectly: “What will your administration do to address our generation’s greatest challenge, the global climate crisis?”
It turns out, our crazy idea isn’t that crazy. We reached out to our friends at LoudSauce and found out we can crowdfund this thing. If 500 of us give $5 or more we can turn this video of movement leaders into an ad that will reach millions of people on national TV!
On Monday, Duresny and hundreds of Florida students are planning to march on the final debate in Boca Raton and taking our demands directly to the candidates and the media. Let’s have their back by putting this ad on national television.
Please chip in what you can so we amplify their efforts and break the climate silence.
Thanks for your support!
P.S. This is one of our best opportunities to break the climate silence. Please donate what you can, and just as importantly, SHARE with friends so we can build the buzz about this exciting campaign. Here’s a meme you can share on Facebook.
