One participant was New Jersey resident Lindsay McNamara, a 2012 graduate of the University of Delaware who publishes the 20-something environmentalist blog. Lindsay wrote in her blog today about the event. You'll find it below, with permission, as a Guest Post.
“Hey Obama, we don’t want no climate drama!” and “Hey, hey, ho, ho, KXL has got to go!” were two of my favorite chants from my first rally. On Sunday, February 17, 2013, I traveled with Delaware Sierra Club and a student group I was involved with at the University of Delaware, Students for the Environment, to Washington, D.C. to urge President Obama to move “Forward on Climate.”
