Light the Purple #M
Climate change is bigger than rivalry!
Join University of Utah and BYU students to form a giant “#M” on the side of the mountain during the big rivalry game. The #M stands for “Middle” and for “Mitt”. Middle because if Utes and Cougs can meet up to work on climate solutions, Democrats and Republicans can too. And Mitt, because we’re thanking our main man, Senator Mitt Romney, for taking climate change seriously.
To thank Mitt, we’re inviting Utahns to sign the first-ever “don’t change” Change.org petition. Mitt is showing that climate change is bigger than rivalries and political ideologies, and we don’t want to see that stop anytime soon. So we’re thanking him for seeing that bipartisanship (the far middle) is where durable solutions will be found.
When the “#M” shows up on the side of the mountain, we’ll flood Twitter with tweets about the petition and some love for our climate-friendly, neighborhood Senator.
If Utes and Cougs can team up on climate change, maybe Democrats and Republicans can too.
