South Bend Steps It UP!

Mark Your Calendars: On Sunday, Nov. 4th, from 3pm to 5pm, IU South Bend, Notre Dame, and Saint Mary's will be rallying to fight global warming. Plans are currently being finalized, but this is what's tentatively scheduled:

Beginning at our respective schools, we're going to march toward downtown South Bend, where we'll all converge to host Step It Up! The exact location for this rally has yet to be finalized - it may be at either Howard Park or the Jon Hunt Plaza in front of the Morris Performing Arts Center - as soon as it's confirmed I'll post an update on the blog. But for now, everyone at IU South Bend will gather at the Peace Pole in front of the Schurz Library and then we'll walk from Northside Blvd to the rally.

Right now, Mayor Steve Luecke has been invited and Congressman Joe Donnelly said he'll be at the rally. The St. Joe Valley Green Party will also participate, and the local Sierra Club group may have a representative to promote the Cool Cities program. Plans are currently underway to invite local "green" business and the Citizens Action Coalition.

So please help by spreading the word. I hope to see you at the Step It UP rally! :0)
