Make sure to join Third Act’s monthly all-in event with special guests, music, and movement highlights. We’ll share campaign updates, what’s up next, and how you can plug in over the coming weeks

About this event

Join us for our All-In Call post-election featuring Third Act advisor Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass and recently-named MacArthur fellow. We will celebrate and/or commiserate about the outcome and discuss what’s next for our work together to safeguard our democracy and protect our climate.

Remember, our work does not end at the ballot box! And…we will have a big announcement to share about our Banking on our Future campaign!
