Queer Dance Party for Climate Justice at Ivanka Trump's House!

It's time to WERK for Mother Earth.

Last Tuesday, the Trump administration passed an Executive Order rolling back environmental regulations and slashed funding to the EPA, essentially halting the Federal progress the US has made in slowing the pace of climate change and on promoting clean energy. 

In response, get ready to shake what your Mamma Earth gave ya and WERK it for climate justice! Thankfully, Ivanka Trump, “BFF of the gays,” supposed climate czar, and brand new employee of the Trump Administration has invited us to come and party in her neighborhood, leaving behind biodegradable glitter that will sparkle in the moonlight. It turns out Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon, Sec. of State and Putin’s BFF, lives right next door! 

We will meet at Dupont Circle (in the actual circle) and parade down Connecticut Ave. to Rexi and Ivanka-poo’s neighborhood to send the clear message that our climate and our communities matter. 

We will surely be joined by Scott Pruitt, the climate denying head of the EPA and by Rick Perry, head of the Dept of Energy, an oil hawk who’s a flaming homophobe. They will come in their faux-leather-tight pants, and you should too!

The entire Trump Administration has shown a blatant disregard for our planet and it’s inhabitants, like paving the way for the Dakota Access Pipeline displacing the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. The reality is that the people most affected by the administration’s bad climate decisions are our most vulnerable friends: our poor, working class, native, trans & POC siblings. We must put our bodies on the line for our earth and for all who depend on its resources.

Also, in case you hadn't heard, Trump revoked protections for LGBTQ government employees and removed LGBTQ questions from the census--all the more reason to turn out and show that YOU COUNT. 

It’s getting hot in here. So let's WERK.
