Fast for the CAP

Campus-wide & Friday, Student Center
Date: 
April 21, 2011 8:00pm - April 22, 2011 8:00pm

On Friday, members of the student body will be giving up their privilege to eat - a privilege many people around the world are losing because of climate change.  The 12 members of the Greenhouse are leading a Fast for the CAP, starting Thursday night at 8PM and lasting until Friday at 8PM.

The purpose of this action is to raise awareness about the Climate Action Plan and to show solidarity for those people in the world who suffer injustices of climate change. Because of climate change, people are threatened world-wide with increasing food scarcity and environmental insecurities.

Please join us in this action. Ribbons and information on fasting will be available in the Student Center on Thursday. Contact rdgill07@stlawu.edu for more information.
