Who are we?
We are Extinction Rebellion Charlottesville: an open community choosing to face the unprecedented global emergency of our current Climate Crisis through assembly, song, and non-violent direct action.
Extinction Rebellion is an international network using non-violent direct action to persuade governments to act on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
The UN has warned us that if we do not act immediately, there will be global food shortages, mass starvation and social collapse across the world. The International Panel on Climate Change report “Global Warming of 1.5 ºC” is a good place to start for understanding the wide ranging dangers we face.
In coming together, we recognize what we have lost, what we stand to lose, and our strength to fight.

On Fridays, 12-1pm we are making funeral processions on Charlottesville's downtown mall. We gather at the Free Speech Wall starting at 11:45. Come sing songs of lament and hope with us!
We gather on Sundays from 3-5 to plan and build community. E-mail or talk to us in person to get the location!
