American Family Voices
- Location: DC - 20005
- Marching Since: January 31, 2006
American Family Voices (AFV) has a tradition of encouraging its members to get involved with important projects that affect our daily lives. The "Virtual March on Washington" is just that.
The Stop Global Warming Virtual March on Washington is a bipartisan effort to bring all Americans together in one place, proving there is a vast consensus that global warming is here now and it is time for our country to start addressing it. With the support of leading scientists, political and religious leaders, prominent Americans and concerned citizens, the Virtual March on Washington is moving across the United States via the Internet from one town to the next, showing the evidence of global warming's alarming affects, and highlighting real people's concerns and real solutions along the way.
AFV is proud to partner with this effort and to take the first steps toward preserving the environment. We march today, because if we do nothing we will be left with the consequences tomorrow.
The world is already seeing the effects of climate change: the change of seasonal weather patterns, the drastic increase of the melting rate of polar ice caps and glaciers and the rise of sea levels. These are all indicators of events to come. Even the Pentagon has issued warnings about the future, if global climate change is permitted to continue.
America is responsible for the majority of the world's pollution, yet the White House and the Republican leadership in Congress refuse to help resolve the problem. Instead they are helping the polluters almost every chance they get - lowering regulations on industry and cutting deals with polluters that reduce the standards on emissions, while simultaneously fighting to tap into our nation's natural resources and shrink our parks, sanctuaries and preserves.
The power of grassroots America is unstoppable, and it is our hope that you will personally join us and help mobilize your friends as well. Like you, we understand that the earth's resources are limited and that it is our mandate to help change the way we treat our environment and natural resources.
We feel it is our duty to join in the fight to stop global warming and to encourage you to do the same. A clean and healthy world is the greatest legacy we can give.
Please join us.
