Fossil Free California Honors Youth Allies at Fall Fundraiser

Rio at the Club

Comedian Josh Kornbluth recently joined youth from Earth Guardians and Youth vs Apocalypse at the historic Berkeley City Club, to celebrate Fossil Free California and our intergenerational DivestCalSTRS campaign. Fossil Free California honored its youth allies at this fundraising event, and is sharing the proceeds of this event with youth activists.

The evening included Kornbluth’s hilarious observations on the role of empathy – and painting within the lines! – for movement building; a musical performance by high school student Elliot Ingle; and powerful testimony from middle school youth who have been attending CalSTRS meetings to demand divestment from fossil fuels. If you missed it – we missed you! And we look forward to seeing you at other FFCA events in the near future. If you would like to make a donation, FFCA’s website is open 24/7. 🙂
