"Third Act is people over the age of 60 — “experienced Americans” — determined to change the world for the better. We muster political and economic power to move Washington and Wall Street in the name of a fairer, more sustainable society and planet. We back up the great work of younger people, and we make good trouble of our own."
Th!rd Act is currently promoting two Programs: Protect the Vote and Bug the Banks.
From the end of March to the beginning of May 2022 is a sacred season when many of the world’s religions celebrate holy days. Because of this, Third Act Faith, GreenFaith, and Exodus Alliance have been celebrating these events by using the symbolism of our traditions to call for the end of investing in the fossil fuel industry.
On March 28, 2022, Bill McKibben, Molly Brown, and Rabbi Arthur Waskow were in conversation about ways that people of faith can join in, with Nana Firman from GreenFaith moderating.
Th!rd Act has two upcoming events:
Let's Get Started - On April 25th, 2022, from 1:30 p.m. PDT to 2::30 p.m. PDT Third Act Lead Organizer Bob Fulkerson will explain Working Groups and how you can plug into Third Act organizing. RSVP for that event here.
Monthly All-in Event - On April 27th, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. PDT to 6:00 p.m. PDT join Third Act’s monthly all-in event with special guests, music, and movement highlights. They’ll share campaign updates, what’s up next, and how you can plug in over the coming weeks. RSVP for that event here.
Bill McKibben is a contributing author to the New Yorker Magazine titled Annals of a Warming Planet.
