MOVING PLANET DAY September 24th! Culver City Alternative Transportation Parade

350.org has initiated another global day of action for the climate:

Moving Planet will be a day to put our demands for climate action into motion—marching, biking, skating—calling for the world to go beyond fossil fuels.

See more about Moving Planet here.

 

Transition Culver City is hosting an Alternative Transportation Parade to celebrate and explore fossil-free transportation in Culver City, in partnership with several organizations including Sustainable Streets, reDiscover Center, and Culver City Bicycle Coalition.

Join Transition Culver City on Saturday September 24th, from 1-4pm!

1pm: We’ll meet at Town Plaza, by the Lion Fountain (9500 Culver Blvd), to get costumed, decorate bikes, shoes & hats, and make parade banners and signs.

2pm: Cyclists will explore the Downtown Connector, a newly installed bike route linking Downtown Culver City to the new Metro Light Rail station.

Walkers, runners, strollers & little red wagons will take Washington Blvd. toward Light Rail station.

3pm: At City Hall (9770 Culver Blvd.), we’ll gather to celebrate and create individualized plans and goals for lowering our carbon footprint! Children can create mini alternative vehicles from recyclables provided by reDiscover Center.

Helmets required! Wear fancy parade attire.  Materials for banner-making and bike, hat & shoe decorating will be provided.

    What about people with dis-abilities – are they not part of the planet you claim to be moving? They cannot march, bike, or skate!
    Totally outrageous that you are not including about 10-20% of the population!
    Plan Ahead! Support Dis-ability Rights!

      Hi Andy-

      Thank you for raising our awareness about how our campaign appears to you. We of course intend our parade to be totally inclusive. We will have two groups, one on bikes and one for walkers, folks with wheelchairs and scooters and walkers, families with strollers.

      We’ve made every effort to make our intentions clear. We apologize if our outreach was less than inclusive.

      Hopefully we’ll see you at the parade.
