Join the Zero Hour Arkansas registered student organization in writing personalized letters regarding climate change to the city council in Fayetteville. The Zero Hour Arkansas RSO will meet at 5:15 p.m. in Mullins 453 on Tuesday, Jan. 31!

"We are in a climate emergency with impacts already killing people and destroying ecosystems," said Amelia Southern Uribe, president of Zero Hour Arkansas. "There are 900-plus local councils globally that have declared a climate emergency and are developing climate emergency action plans for their community. These plans are providing the first ray of hope in an otherwise frightening time. It's time for Fayetteville to set a trend in Arkansas and declare a climate emergency."

About Zero Hour Arkansas: Zero Hour Arkansas is a climate justice community and registered student organization amplifying BIPOC and other historically excluded voices from the environmental movement. The organization merges science, cultural wisdom and creativity through curriculum and interactive learning experiences to connect individuals with their local communities to root their environmental practice in equity and inclusion.
