12 to 5 PM on April 14, 2007 at Himmel Park, 1000 N. Tucson Blvd.

On April 14th a National Day of Climate Action, people across the nation will gather at the places they love, both iconic and everyday, to raise awareness about the effects of climate change. StepItUp2007 will join all these geographically disparate events through digital media and the internet to call on Congress to take decisive action on global warming: 80% cuts in carbon emissions by 2050.

Solar Rock is organizing this outdoor concert of local youth talent, along with educational displays by local schools, college students, community organizations, local businesses, and speakers. The rally goal is to educate the Tucson community about climate change and its potential effects—globally and especially in Southern Arizona—through grassroots mobilization and active participation.

Solar Rock will be purchasing green tags to ensure that our event is carbon neutral. You can find all this information on this web page.

You can participate by having an educational display or table. Join us, as we cultivate Tucson’s active grassroots community and sow the seeds of change in national and local policy!

Contact Lisa Dollinger via phone 520-322-9145 or e-mail with any questions, or to discuss this event further. Solar Rock greatly appreciates your help!
