Jane recently launched her civil disobedience campaign “Fire Drill Fridays,” which aims to galvanize policymakers into battling climate change. According to a press release, Jane plans to be “joined at every ‘Fire Drill Friday’ through at least mid-January by celebrities, scientists, economists and people from impacted communities who will speak and some of whom will invite arrest.” The statement also revealed that Jane decided to move to the nation’s capital for four months to continue the fight.
“Change is coming by design or by disaster,” the statement read. “A Green New Deal that transitions off fossil fuels provides the design. They say it’s not realistic, that it’s Socialism. That’s what they said about Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, and we got Social Security and a middle class.”
Jane’s initiative echoes the sentiments of other celebrities who are calling for combative climate change measures. In September, stars such as Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Shawn Mendes showed their support for the Global Climate Change Strike as citizens nationwide gathered to make their voices heard.
