About Fire Drill Fridays
As climate activist Greta Thunberg said, “Our house is on fire” — and we need to act like it.
Inspired by Greta and the youth climate strikes, Reverend Barber’s Moral Mondays, and Randall Robinson’s anti-apartheid protests, actor and activist, Jane Fonda, launched Fire Drill Fridays (FDF) in collaboration with Greenpeace USA in October 2019. Starting in Washington, D.C. with a series of peaceful actions, FDF brings together frontline activists, youth, Indigenous leaders, climate experts, celebrities, and lovers of the planet to demand our elected leaders act on the climate emergency.
Since its inception, our movement to fight the global climate disaster has inspired hundreds to participate in non-violent direct action, thousands to rally, millions to amplify calls for action on social media, and more than 12 million viewers to join us for virtual shows and teach-ins. Now, FDF is headed to the frontlines of the climate crisis to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with communities who are fighting back against Big Oil!
