Bloomington Party for the Planet!
Ivy Tech Campus
200 Daniels Way
July 7
6 p.m.

The climate crisis can be solved! Join more than 2 billion people worldwide for this event – a pitch-in supper, conversations about what we all can do about our climate and the chance to learn more about the presidential candidates.

Bring a dish to share (a main dish for last names beginning with A-M, all others a salad, side dish or dessert), as well as a beverage and place setting for yourself. Alcohol is not permitted, as the gathering is in the student commons room.

A DVD provided by will be shown, plus portions of MoveOn’s town hall meeting in which presidential candidates talk about energy and global warming. At 8 p.m. the group will tune into the LiveEarth concert, which will be streamed live on the Internet.
