Dear President Obama,
I want to begin by thanking you on behalf of my generation and future generations for making it clear in your State of the Union speech that you are truly committed to tackling climate change.
I am too; that's why I risked my personal freedom today in front of the White House, alongside inspirational leaders from across the country.

This week we returned from a walk on the beach and learned that a dear friend had died at only 39 years old. Rebecca Tarbotton, executive director at Rainforest Action Network, was lost in a tragic drowning accident on December 26. The world lost a fierce hero for the rights of communities and a sustainable environment this week.
Before coming to Earthworks, I worked closely with Becky at RAN, and as we both became directors of our organizations, we leaned on each other for support and advice. Becky was a leaders’ leader; she could hold her own in corporate boardrooms and dive bars; we worked side by side on issues large and small. Her tenure at RAN included remarkable success.
