Step It Up 2007:

Ann Arbor to host national global warming rally


WHAT:           On November 3rd, Americans will demand real leadership on global warming. From coast to coast, people will rally in communities and invite our politicians to join us. At 10 locally organized events across Michigan, community members and elected officials will come together to rally for Congressional action to fight global warming.


The second “Step it Up” is an occasion to see who has a real plan to tackle the defining challenge of our time. One year before the election, we have to make sure the world witnesses our national call to action: “Step it up! It’s time for climate leaders!”
