On Monday, Jan. 23 communities across North Carolina will host events as part of a statewide day of action for Climate Justice and a nationwide call from the People’s Climate Movement for 100 actions in 100 cities in the first 100 hours of the new administration. Boone will join this nationwide movement with a Peaceful People’s Parade hosted by the grassroots group, Boone Rising.
The Peaceful People’s Parade is a celebration of the High Country community we love and an opportunity for residents from Boone and surrounding areas to come together and pledge to stand united to protect the mountains and our community from climate change and social injustices. The parade will feature live acoustic music, acro-yoga, flow dance, puppets and costumes from the Elkland Art Center, banners, signs and more! Children of all ages are welcome and folks are encouraged to bring their own signs and art, or show up a little early to pick out an Elkland Art Center puppet or costume.
