Multiple crises have converged in 2020 to disrupt lives across the globe. The suffering caused by Covid-19, racial injustice, climate change and economic inequality are all symptoms of a toxic global financial system that is driving us, as well as other life on earth, to extinction. Our government and institutions are not doing their part to keep us safe. This is an EMERGENCY! In this talk, Extinction Rebellion Phoenix presents the scientific and structural contributors to climate breakdown, and how we can unite as individuals and as a global community to save our people and our planet. Extinction Rebellion requests that all new members participate in this talk when they become a part of the group. It's a great way to learn how we got here, connect with others who are coming to the same realizations and wrestling with a similar grief, and find a way to make a positive impact. Even if you don't intend to join Extinction Rebellion, this talk will introduce you to the challenges of the next decade and the measures we need to take to prevent catastrophe. ***NOTE- Please signup using the event link- https://actionnetwork.org/events/heading-for-extinction-and-what-to-do-about-it-60/.
