March through June WIRT & Allied Events

Friends and supporters,

Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) activists and allies are planning powerful convergences, training workshops, direct actions, and educational forums that expand the movement against extreme energy and for a livable future!  The Events Calendar page of the WIRT website lists and links to activities in the Northwest region that WIRT organizes and/or participates in, including emerging frontline and solidarity actions with our comrades across the continent.  Visit this constantly updated events page often and get involved in grassroots resistance to the root causes of climate change!
