At Noon on Sunday, Feb. 17, thousands of Americans will head to Washington, D.C. to make Forward on Climate the largest climate rally in history. Join this historic event to make your voice heard and help the president start his second term with strong climate action.

Crippling drought. Devastating wildfires. Superstorm Sandy. Climate has come home—and the American people get it.

The first step to putting our country on the path to addressing the climate crisis is for President Obama to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. His legacy as president will rest squarely on his response, resolve and leadership in solving the climate crisis.

When: Feb. 17 at Noon
Where: The National Mall, Washington D.C.
Who: 350.org, Sierra Club and Hip-Hop Caucus

Why: To tell President Barack Obama it's time to lead in the fight against climate change, beginning with the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
