Join us in community to celebrate Third Act's First Anniversary with joy, gratitude, and action.

About this event

It is the final All-In Call of the year, and we are heading into 2023 with joy, gratitude, and action.  Without you none of this would have been possible. We are kicking off the call with people who are some of our earliest supporters. Join us, Akaya Windwood, Rev Lennox Yearwood, Rebecca Solnit and Bill McKibben for community and conversation.

Without you none of this would have been possible.  In 2023, we need you to stop the flow of money that keeps the fossil fuel industry expanding. 

Thousands of Third Actors took the pledge to close their accounts and cut up their credit cards from the four big banks—Chase, Citi, Wells-Fargo, and Bank of America—if they don’t stop lending money to the people destroying our climate by 3.21.23. Tune in as we  share plans and actions to build and sustain our movement of elders.
