About


Hello, and welcome to the headquarters of Step It Up 2007! 

This is our organizing hub for a National Day of Climate Action--April 14th, 2007.  On this one spring day, there were hundreds and hundreds of rallies all across the country.  There were gatherings in every state, and in many of America's most iconic places: on the levees in New Orleans, on top of the melting glaciers on Granite Peak in Wyoming, even underwater on the endangered coral reefs off Key West.

There were also rallies outside churches, along the tide lines in our coastal cities, in cornfields and forests and on statehouse steps. Every group had the same message: "Step it up, Congress! Cut Carbon 80% by 2050." As people gathered, we linked pictures of the protests together electronically via the web--before the weekend was out, we collectively assembled the largest demonstration the country has ever seen, not in numbers but in extent. From every corner of the nation we started to shake things up.
