Join the Abq Climate Coalition for the1st Anniversary of Superstorm 
Sandy candlelight vigil to remember the victims of extreme weather.

This is an Organizing for Action (OFA) nationwide day of action. Ours 
will be one of dozens of events around the country to mark the impact of 
extreme weather from climate change. We chose the Abq Zoo because it was 
a local site of major damage (downed trees) from the July 26th extreme 
storm that brought us 89mph winds. The Zoo is also iconic of biological 
diversity and we will have the NM state representative from Defenders of 
Wildlife speak about the threat of species extinction caused by global 

OFA intends to make Oct 29th a major yearly anniversary in the fight 
against climate change -- please join us to mark year one.
