In the run-up to the Sept. 21 People’s Climate March in New York City, local activists are planning a number of associated events next week in the Roaring Fork Valley.

The local chapters of Citizens’ Climate Lobby will present two free screenings of the new documentary, “Disruption,” at the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies at Hallam Lake on Wednesday and at the Third Street Center in Carbondale on Thursday.

Both events are scheduled for 7 p.m. The film is a call to action on climate change, making the case that the problem demands a popular movement of historic proportions.

Meanwhile, the Peoples’ Climate Train is due to pass through Glenwood Springs on Tuesday, carrying activists heading to the climate march in New York. Locals are encouraged to come greet the train when it makes a whistle stop at the Glenwood Amtrak station sometime after 12:10 p.m.

The Roaring Fork chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, consisting mainly of downvalley residents, formed about a year ago. An Aspen chapter formed in August. For more information, contact Dave Reed at
