Our Story

As Greta Thunberg said, “Our House Is On Fire” and we need to act like it.

About Fire Drill Fridays

Inspired by climate leader, Greta Thunberg, and Reverend Barber’s Moral Mondays, Jane Fonda launched Fire Drill Fridays (FDF) in collaboration with Greenpeace USA in Washington, D.C. with a series of civil disobedience actions to demand our elected leaders act on the climate emergency. From its inception in October 2019 until pandemic shutdowns turned FDF virtual, thousands of people showed up at weekly rallies to support action on climate, millions amplified calls for action on social media, and more than 600 people engaged in civil disobedience and were arrested. Since moving online, 11 million people have tuned into FDF virtual shows, featuring frontline activists, celebrities, experts, and movement leaders. Now, heading into 2023, Fire Drill Fridays is back in the streets!

About Greenpeace USA

Celebrating over 50 years of action, Greenpeace USA is committed to rebuilding the country’s unjust social, environmental, and economic systems from the ground up to address the climate crisis, advance racial justice, and build an economy that puts people first. Part of a global network of independent campaigning organizations that use peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future, Greenpeace USA’s fight to save the planet and its people has grown more serious with the devastating impacts of climate change; an extractivist, racist, and inequitable economy; destruction of ancient forests; and the deterioration of oceans.
